After releasing the December 2022 security update for Galaxy Z Fold 3 in Europe, Samsung has now served the update to the US region; notably, the update is currently available for carrier-locked devices through the Comcast network. The update should be available on other networks in the next few days.
As per the information, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is listed in the category of monthly security updates, which means the device is eligible for regular monthly updates, and being Samsung’s flagship device, it always gets quick updates compared to other phones. The latest update carries a new firmware version for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 as F926USQS2EVK7.
The December 2022 update doesn’t bring any new features, but it includes approximately 90 patches which were added by Google and Samsung together. Moreover, it improves the inbuilt functions that enhance the overall performance and stability of the device.
December 2022 Security Patch Vulnerabilities:
According to the Samsung documentation, the latest patches include the fix to as many as 93 vulnerabilities, 67 of them common to (almost) all Android devices. Of the long list, 5 vulnerabilities are defined as critical, 63 high priority, and 12 moderate. Most of these vulnerabilities affect Galaxy smartphones and tablets with Android 10, Android 11, and Android 12, but some also touch the latest version of the robot. Among the latter, one concerns the RCS system, which would allow malicious actors to access the phone number of an incoming call. It also required action on the vulnerability that would allow access to the contents of the toast notifications of the Personal Area through the Nice Catch app (it is part of the Good Lock package).
