We have entered a new month (the last month of 2021, to be exact) and Samsung has already gone into its security update delivery mode. The latest device to pick up the all-new December 2021 security update is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Yes! The original foldable from the South Korean giant Samsung is receiving the latest security update. Recently, Samsung delivered the December 2021 security update to its Galaxy Z Flip 5G model. Now, it is time for the vanilla model to be served with the update.
To recall, Galaxy Z Flip launched with Android 10 onboard on February 2020. Earlier this year, it bagged its first firmware update in the form of Android 11. It is expected to receive the Android 12 update soon.
As noted by SamMobile, the update is currently rolling out to a few markets. Notably, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip December 2021 security update is live in Australia and Switzerland.
More countries are expected to join the bandwagon soon. It is really important to update your device with the latest security update available. Because not only it fixes the underlying issues not fixed by the previous update, it also brings updated security and privacy enhancements.
As usual, this Galaxy Z Flip security update is totally incremental in nature. Meaning that it is doesn’t add any new features to the phone.

However, it does fix multiple security and privacy-related vulnerabilities. This new December 2021 security update for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip arrives with software version F700FXXS8EUI2.
Samsung hasn’t updated its official security bulletin page. So, we aren’t completely sure about what all vulnerabilities this new December 2021 security update fixes.
We expect Samsung to update its security bulletin page in the coming days. You can keep a check on it, by heading over to the official security bulletin page by clicking here.
Along with general bug fixes, the new update is also expected to bring device stability improvements. If you are a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip owner and you reside in Australia or Switzerland, then you should have received the update via OTA.
