Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 with One UI 3.1.1 onboard. Most of the new features in One UI 3.1.1 are related to large-screen foldable devices. However, the update was also released to the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 20, and the Galaxy A52. Now, Samsung has released it to the Galaxy Z Flip as well.
The Galaxy Z Flip is getting the One UI 3.1.1 update with firmware version F700FXXU8EUH5 in various European markets. In South Korea, the update comes with firmware version F700NKOU3EUH5 and is available on all carrier networks.
The clamshell foldable smartphone will get Flex Mode Panel and Drag & Split support, but not much else. Other features include Bedtime Mode quick setting toggle, faster pop-up menus, and slightly improved stock app designs. The update also includes the September 2021 security patch, which fixes various bugs and vulnerabilities.
With the Flex Mode Panel feature, you can force apps to support Flex Mode even if they don’t support it by default. You can do that by turning on Flex Mode Panel in the ‘Labs’ section on the Galaxy Z Flip and then enabling it for the apps of your choice. The Drag & Split feature allows you to open links on the other half of the foldable screen. It works on Samsung Internet, Samsung Notes, My Files, Messages, MS Office, OneNote, and OneDrive.
If you are a Galaxy Z Flip user in Europe, you can check for the latest software update by navigating to Settings » Software update and clicking on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.
