Samsung had released the Android 12 update to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in the last week of December 2021. However, the update was limited to the international variants of the phone. Now, the carrier-locked variants of the foldable phone have started getting the major Android OS update in the US.
The Android 12-based One UI 4.0 update for the carrier-locked Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with firmware version F916USQU2FVAB in the US. The new software is rolling out on Sprint and T-Mobile networks in the country, and other networks could release the update soon. The update also brings the February 2022 security patch.
