Early today, Samsung had announced that it would release the One UI 3.1 update to various high-end and mid-range smartphones. And it looks like the company was serious when it said that all those devices would start getting the update today. After releasing the One UI 3.1 update to the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Note 20 series a few hours ago, Samsung has released it for its foldable smartphones.
The One UI 3.1 update has started rolling out to the Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The Galaxy Z Flip is receiving the update (firmware version F700FXXU4DUB4) in Austria, while the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is getting the update (firmware version F707BXXU2DUB4) in the UK. The new update is also rolling out to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 (firmware version F916BXXU1DUB5) in Germany. We expect the new firmware updates to go live in other markets soon.
The new software update brings minor UI changes and a few new features to the Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Some of those features include Private Share, object eraser tool, improved Single Take mode in the camera app, and the ability to remove location data from images while sharing them. Galaxy S21 features like Director’s View and Google Discover Feed could be missing from the update, though.
If you are a Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, or Galaxy Z Fold 2 user in any of the markets mentioned above, you can check for the update by navigating to Settings » Software update menu and then tapping on Download and install. Alternatively, you can also download the entire firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually.
