Sprint’s Galaxy Z Flip 5G finally gets the May 2021 security update

The international version of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G has already received the June 2021 security patch, but not all variants of the foldable phone have been so lucky. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G’s carrier-locked versions in the US have been stuck with the April 2021 security patch. Just one day before the start of June, the Sprint version of the phone has started receiving the May 2021 security update.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G’s Sprint variant is now receiving a new software update with firmware version F707USQU2CUD9. It includes the May 2021 security patch along with the usual bug fixes and stability improvements. This security patch was first released to the unlocked variant of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G one month ago.

If you are a Galaxy Z Flip 5G user on Sprint’s network in the US, you might have received a notification regarding the new software. If not, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. AT&T, T-Mobile, and other carrier versions of the clamshell-style foldable phone could receive this security patch over the next few days.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G was launched in August 2020 with Android 10 on board. It received the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update five months ago and the One UI 3.1 update three months ago.
