The South Korean firm has released new software updates to dozens of smartphones and tablets, including the Galaxy A01, Galaxy A20, Galaxy A52s 5G, Galaxy Note 10 series, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The latest Galaxy device to get the new security update is the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

    The carrier-locked version of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 (SM-F916U) is getting the October 2021 security update in the US. The update, which comes with firmware version F916USQS2EUI3, is rolling out to devices on T-Mobile's network in the US. Apart from fixing over 60 vulnerabilities related to user privacy and data security, the update might also include device stability improvements and general bug fixes.
