    The official One UI 6.0 (Android 14) update is now rolling out to the Galaxy Z Flip 5, Samsung's latest clamshell foldable. The first stable One UI 6.0 release was for the Galaxy S23 series, and Samsung later brought it to devices like the Galaxy S22, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and Galaxy A54, and it is now the Z Flip 5's turn.

    The rollout has started with the US, and it will be available in more countries soon.

    Galaxy Z Flip 5 gets stable Android 14 (One UI 6.0) update in the US for carrier-locked units

    Right now, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is getting the Android 14-based stable One UI 6.0 update in the US. It is specifically for the carrier-locked version of the foldable phone on Verizon's network, bearing firmware version F731USQU1BWK9. However, we expect that the update will also reach other carrier-locked Galaxy Z Flip 5 units within the next few days. It is a major update with its download size reaching over 3GB, so it is better to download it through a Wi-Fi network.

    This update also brings the November 2023 security patch to the Galaxy Z Flip 5. It fixes over 65 security flaws uncovered in the previous version of the software. To download the update on your Galaxy Z Flip 5, navigate to Settings » Software update and tap Download and install. The firmware file for this update will be available in our firmware database shortly.

    One UI 6.0 features and changes

    One UI 6.0 is based on Android 14, and it brings several new features and design changes to the Galaxy Z Flip 5. It features a completely revamped Quick Panel design, a media player widget with a waveform animation, a slightly tweaked notifications design, a new emoji design, new fonts and placement options for the lock screen clock widget, and the removal of ‘Samsung' from the names of some stock apps.

    You can view all the One UI 6.0 features and design changes in our in-depth video below.

    There are two new widgets: Custom Camera and Weather Insights. All the stock apps have been improved, including the Camera app, which now has a simpler design. There are more watermark alignment options in the Camera app. There is an Auto FPS option for both 30fps and 60fps videos in the Camera app. The stock Weather app has more detailed information, enhanced illustrations, and the ability to check the weather in map view without adding a location. You can start Bixby Text Call during an ongoing call.

    In the Gallery app, you can view image or video information by clicking the ‘i' icon below the file. In the details view, AI-powered image editing suggestions are displayed. There is an enhanced Story View in the Gallery app. You can save clipped images as stickers in the Samsung Keyboard app. Stickers can also be clipped from videos in the Gallery app. The Photo Editor now has larger and easier-to-access controls for image editing. You can draw on custom stickers, undo and redo edits after saving the image, and use new text backgrounds and styles.

    The Video Editor has been renamed to Video Studio, and it offers more video editing options. You can save and edit projects later. Samsung Health has received a new home page design and custom sizes for water cups. Reminders can now be created in the Calendar app, and the Calendar app offers event repeat suggestions. You can move events in the Calendar app with two hands.

    There is a new Battery section directly in the Settings app. You can sort notifications by time. There is a new two-hand drag-and-drop gesture to move multiple files from one place to another. Pop-up app windows now stay open even when you access the multitasking menu. While sharing images, previews of those images are displayed in the Share Sheet.

    Samsung Internet offers a background video playback option and the ability to move bookmarks and tabs with two hands. The Modes & Routines app has received new actions and conditions. New conditions include when a new media is being played and new actions include changing Samsung Keyboard settings. Samsung Wallet (Samsung Pass) can now save passkeys for logins.
