Samsung released the October 2021 security update to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in the US earlier this month. The company has now started rolling out the update to the international version of its most affordable foldable smartphone.
The latest update for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with firmware version F711BXXU2AUJ7. With this update, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 can capture Portrait images of pets (cats and dogs). Samsung says that the Portrait mode works with both front and rear cameras of the smartphone, although some Portrait effects can only be applied after an image is captured.
As mentioned earlier, it also includes the October 2021 security patch that fixes more than 60 privacy and security-related vulnerabilities.
