Samsung continues to update its older foldable smartphones to Android 12L – a version of Android tailored for foldables and tablets. The latest device to get the Android 12L update with OneUI 4.1.1 on top is the Galaxy Z Fold2, which was launched in 2020. Earlier this month, Samsung also seeded updates to the Z Fold3, Z Flip3, and Tab S8 series.
The update for the Z Fold2 comes with the F916BXXU2HVHA firmware version identifier, currently available in Germany. More regions are expected to receive the update in the coming weeks. This update also brings the September security patch.
An important new feature of OneUI 4.1.1 and Android 12L is the taskbar, which allows you to perform multiple tasks faster and more efficiently task. You can pin your favorite apps and jump between them. The user can also resize the window more easily through the window handle. You can also use a two-finger multi-touch gesture to launch multitasking view.
Galaxy Z Fold2 owners also get the ability to extract text in the camera app, more customization options in the Samsung keyboard, improved file search in My Files and new wallpaper customization options.
