Last week, Samsung released the second One UI 5.0 beta update to the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Today, the company has released the third One UI 5.0 beta update to its latest flagship foldable smartphone. Going by this pace, it looks like the device could get the stable Android 13 update by the end of this month.
The third Android 13 beta update for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 has been released in India. It comes with firmware version ending ZVK1 and brings the November 2022 security update. The new software focuses on performance improvements and bug fixes. It is a 540.09MB update, so you should prefer downloading it via a Wi-Fi network.
Galaxy Z Fold 4 One UI 5.0 Beta 3 Update: What’s new?
According to the changelog, the new software brings improved battery life compared to previous One UI 5.0 beta versions. It also fixes issues related to the phone’s software crashing when setting lockscreen shortcuts and while using the camera. Some users were facing issues while typing in Korean using a Bluetooth keyboard. The phone also failed to run Samsung Pay when it was activated through a gesture, and the phone was folded. Samsung has fixed those issues with the new update.
In the previous One UI 5.0 beta software, the status bar disappeared sometimes, and the cover screen’s aspect ratio was sometimes incorrect. The South Korean firm has solved all those issues along with a lot of other minor bugs.
If you’ve enrolled your Galaxy Z Fold 4 in the One UI 5.0 beta program and if you live in India, you can now download the new software by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install. The stable update could be released after two more One UI 5.0 beta updates.
