The June 2020 Android security update is now hitting the international variants of Samsung’s first foldable mid-ranger, the Galaxy Z Flip (SM-F700F). Identified by build number F700FTBS1ATE3, the new software package started reaching compatible Galaxy Z Flip units just yesterday. Samsung deployed the firmware upgrade in a rather swift manner as the OTA package should already be available for download worldwide. On the off chance you’re still waiting for the notification prompting you to download the new patch, there’s always the option of installing it manually using a compatible image from SamMobile‘s Galaxy Z Flip firmware archives.
The U.S. variants of the foldable flip phone (SM-F700U) will presumably receive the very same update shortly. The OTA package itself is 203.09MB in size and doesn’t feature any other changes or additions beyond the new set of security patches.
Galaxy Z Flip still among Samsung’s top update priorities
The timing of the new security update’s arrival to the Galaxy Z Flip confirms the device remains among Samsung’s top priorities when it comes to after-sales support. Only the international models from the last two Galaxy S-series generations and the Galaxy Note 10 received the June 2020 patches sooner; yesterday, to be more exact. As always, you should ensure your device has sufficient battery charge left prior to starting the installation of the latest firmware upgrade.
Galaxy Z Flip sales are reportedly going reasonably well, especially in the context of current market instabilities stemming from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Samsung’s nascent family of foldable smartphones is expected to expand come August with the launch of the Galaxy Fold 2. Meanwhile, the South Korean electronics giant is also working on a 5G-ready Galaxy Z Flip model.
