Samsung is one of the few brands that has been consistent in providing the latest security updates to its devices. Shortly after updating the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 with October 2021 security update, the company is rolling out the update for Galaxy Z Flip.

Yes. The original flip device from Samsung, the Galaxy Z Flip, is receiving the latest security update. To recall, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Flip, its first attempt at a flip device, back in early 2020.

The flip device instantly caught everyone’s attention, as it was having a clamshell-style design and not a regular slab shape. It came out with Android 10 with One UI 2.0 out of the box.

It received Android 11 bundled with One UI 3.0 back in December 2020, and One UI 3.1.1 a few weeks later. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was powered by the then-latest Snapdragon 855+ chipset.

One of the biggest caveats of the device was the tiny cover display, which was actually good for nothing. Thankfully, the company has addressed this limitation in the latest version of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. You now get a much bigger cover display on it.

Fast forward to now, the device is getting updated with the latest security patch. Notably, the October 2021 security update fixes over 60 vulnerabilities related to data security and privacy.

This means that the update is purely incremental in nature and it simply bumps the security patch level of the device to October 1, 2021.
