The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is getting yet another firmware update today which brings along the September 2021 security patch. The update is reportedly rolling out globally, with users in a handful of regions already seeing the OTA update notification. The update has a size of 200MB with the version number F916BXXS2EUI.
As is the case with most security updates, the company is including a changelog listing out what’s different. There are no new features onboard, though the usual bundle of bug fixes and security enhancements are in place.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 users in Russia will also see the inclusion of some new apps as mandated by the Russian Government, SamMobile reports.
Samsung recently updated the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with One UI 3.1.1
It’s worth pointing out that some Galaxy Z Fold 2 users in Germany received the September security update a few weeks ago. So this new update only applies to international customers of the smartphone.
The Sprint and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 received the September security patch just a few days ago, so a global rollout was always on the cards. Samsung was also fairly quick to bring the One UI 3.1.1 update to the Z Fold 2 just weeks after it was introduced with the Z Fold 3.
Some of the new features brought to the Z Fold 2 include Drag & Split, an upgraded Multi-Active Window, a persistent Taskbar, custom aspect ratios, split-screen for apps, and many more. While the first-gen Z Fold should also see the update, we don’t have a precise timeline for its arrival.
The Z Fold 2 may no longer be in favor since the launch of its successor. However, the Z Fold 2 was a significant upgrade for the company, especially coming from the original Z Fold.
Similarly, Samsung upped the stakes significantly with the 2021 refresh of the Galaxy Z Fold. The phone sports a 7.6-inch 2208×1768 main display and a 6.7-inch 2,268×832 cover display. Both use Samsung’s Dynamic AMOLED 2X screens with a 120Hz refresh rate. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 5G is running the show here backed by the Adreno 660 GPU.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 has two front cameras. One of them is a 4-megapixel under-display sensor while the cover camera consists of a 10-megapixel sensor. The smartphone has 12-megapixel triple rear cameras in an almost identical arrangement as its predecessor.
