The speed at which Samsung is rolling out software updates for its phones is commendable. The Galaxy Z Flip, which is a three-year-old phone, has already started getting the One UI 5.1 update. It is Samsung's latest software update that brings various new features to the foldable phone.

The One UI 5.1 update for the Galaxy Z Flip comes with firmware version F700FXXUAJWAD. It also brings the February 2023 security patch that fixes over four dozen privacy and security vulnerabilities.
