Galaxy Z Flip 3, Z Fold 3 finally getting One UI 4.0 update in more markets


A few weeks ago, Samsung had released the stable version of One UI 4.0 to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in South Korea. However, the update was filled with critical bugs, and it forced the company to halt the update and it was never released widely. Now, the company has started rolling out the update in more markets.

Samsung has released the stable One UI 4.0 update to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in some European markets, including the Netherlands. The update for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with firmware version F711xxxS2BUL6, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s update bears firmware version F926xxxS1BUL6. In South Korea, the updates have firmware versions ending BULC. These new updates also include the December 2021 security patch.

If you are a Galaxy Z Flip 3 or Galaxy Z Fold 3 user in Europe, you can check for the new update by navigating to Settings » Software update and clicking on Download and install. Once these firmware files show up in our firmware database, you can download them and flash them manually.
