Samsung is now rolling out another firmware update for the Galaxy Z Fold 2, and in the process, the company’s bringing the September 2021 security patch to the international model. The new firmware update is rolling out around the world, with Galaxy Z Fold 2 owners in dozens of countries now being able to download it OTA, or from our firmware database.
The firmware update is accompanied by a relatively standard changelog that mentions the usual potential stability improvements, bug fixes, and other enhanced features. For the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in Russia, the update also includes a handful of (bloatware) apps that are now required by the Russian Government.
The new firmware update weighs a little under 200MB
The update includes the September 2021 security patch, which was detailed by Samsung a couple of weeks ago. The September security patch actually began rolling out for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in Europe, specifically Germany, earlier this month, but now it’s rolling out internationally.
The new update (F916BXXS2EUI) isn’t as feature-packed as the previous one, which already brought several features from the Galaxy Z Fold 3 to the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Nevertheless, improved security is nothing to sneeze at.
