Last updated: August 5th, 2021 at 08:38 UTC+02:00

Samsung started rolling out the August 2021 security update in the last week of July. The Galaxy A52 was the first smartphone to get the update. Samsung's first-generation foldable phones—Galaxy Fold 5G and Galaxy Z Flip—received the update this week. Now, the latest security update is available for the Galaxy Fold as well.

The Galaxy Fold (SM-F900F) is currently getting the new software update in France. The update bears firmware version F900FXXS5EUG1 and includes the August 2021 security patch. It fixes 40 vulnerabilities related to user privacy and security. While we don't have the official changelog for the update yet, it could also feature general bug fixes and device stability improvements.

If you are a Galaxy Fold user in France, you will get the update soon. If you don't want to wait for the update to arrive on its own, you can manually check for it by navigating to Settings » Software update and clicking on Download and install. You can also take the manual firmware flashing route, but you'll have to download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and have a Windows PC handy to flash the firmware.

The Galaxy Fold was launched with Android 9-based One UI in September 2019. The phone received the Android 10-based One UI 2 update last year and the Android 11-based One UI 3 update a few months. Currently, the phone is running One UI 3.1, which includes a few features that were originally introduced with the Galaxy S21 series.
