September security patch is out now for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 internationally

Firmware

Last updated: September 23rd, 2021 at 19:05 UTC+02:00

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.

You can verify if the latest firmware is available for your smartphone model in your region via our firmware archive. If it is, you can either acquire it OTA update by tapping the notification once it arrives, or you can try triggering the update from the Settings app in the Software update section. As usual, you can download the new firmware from our database and install it manually on your Galaxy Z Fold 2 using a PC.
