Recently, Samsung has stepped up its software game by keeping pace with the Google Pixel lineup. The company has already rolled out the November 2020 Android security patch update for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphone. What’s more impressive is that the company released the October security patch just last week for its new foldable smartphone.
Now, the same device becomes the first smartphone to get the latest November security patch. Last month, the mid-range Galaxy A50 became the first smartphone to receive the October 2020 security patch update. The latest update for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 carries the build number F916BXXU1BTJB and comes in 350MB of size.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 now gets the November 2020 security patch update
It is currently available for the international variant with the model number SM-F916B. Moreover, a wider rollout should follow up in the coming days. As per the changelog, this update also brings overall stability improvements to the device. According to the source, the new build also upgrades the default camera app to version 10.5.00.95.
If you are using the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with the model number SM-F916B, you can also manually check for the latest update by going to Settings > Software Update > Download. Once the update is available, tap on the “Install now” button to download and install it. The device still runs on Android 10-based One UI 2.5.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Note 20 are the first smartphones to come with One UI 2.5 out of the box. Since Google is yet to publish the security bulletin for the month of November, there is information about the security vulnerabilities that have been fixed in this latest update.
Even Samsung’s own Android security updates page is yet to get updated to show November. Unlike the other premium Galaxy smartphones launched in 2020, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is not part of the One UI Beta Program.
The latest Android 11-based One UI 3.0 beta is currently available for the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 smartphones. Samsung is rumored to begin rolling out the public version before the end of this year. The second-gen Galaxy Fold could also be in the first batch of devices to receive the One UI 3.0 update.
Samsung is also committed to offering three major OS updates for its latest smartphones. Apart from the flagship smartphones and tablets, only a few Galaxy A smartphones are eligible for three years of software updates.
