A few weeks ago, Samsung started rolling out the One UI 4.1.1 update to the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3, and promised that older foldables than those would eventually get it too. The Galaxy Z Fold2 followed, and today’s original Galaxy Z Flip drew a lucky straw as it started receiving the update in the US.
So far, the rollout seems to be limited to those purchased units that are unlocked, so there is no carrier version yet. This update includes the September 2022 security patch level, and when applied you will enter build F22USQU5GVHA.
Flex mode is built in, allowing PC-like controls when the device is partially folded. There are also new gestures for multi-window and pop-up views, and you can now set a different call background for each contact.
Bixby Text & Object Recognition for Gallery & Camera & My Files app gets stronger with better search. The Samsung Keyboard app lets you rearrange the buttons for emoji and stickers, and the space bar is customizable.
As with such releases, the rollout of this update may be phased. As such, it could take days, if not weeks, to reach all Galaxy Z Flip units in the wild.
