    Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Fold 5 November 2023 update is out


    Last updated: November 8th, 2023 at 21:17 UTC+01:00

    The November 2023 security update for Galaxy smartphones and tablets has reached two more Samsung foldables, following a release for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 earlier this week. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and last year's Galaxy Z Fold 4 are getting new updates that pack security enhancements.

    Like the Z Flip 5 update, the Z Fold 5 and Flip 4 update has made its debut in the US, but it shouldn't be long before it is rolled out in other markets as well. For the Galaxy Z Fold 5, the update comes with a firmware version ending in AWJ7 and is available for unlocked units. The Fold 4's update is rolling out to unlocked units and devices on AT&T's network and comes with a firmware version ending in DWJ1 and DWJ4, respectively.

    Expect nothing but security fixes with these updates

    The November 2023 security patch plugs a total of 65 vulnerabilities in the Android OS and Samsung's software, with five marked critical and the rest carrying varying degrees of risk. The update doesn't bring anything else to the two foldables.

    To download the latest update on your Z Fold 5 or Z Fold 4, open the phone's Settings app, select Software update, and tap Download and install. If the update is available for your device, it should show up in a few seconds. If not, try again later, or download the latest firmware from our archive and manually install it on the phone using a Windows PC.

    Editor's Note: New features and other improvements will come to the Z Fold 5 and Z Fold 4 with the Android 14 and One UI 6 update. Until that update is ready, the standard monthly updates will most likely continue to be limited to security fixes and general stability. The Fold 5 is currently ahead in terms of how many One UI 6 beta updates it has received until now, so it is likely to get the stable firmware before the Fold 4.
