Carrier-locked Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 get One UI 5.1.1 update in the US

Samsung One UI 5.1.1 is the latest skin upgrade that is specially designed for large and flexible-screen devices such as Galaxy Tablets and Galaxy Foldables. The company has already served almost all of the devices if you count all the regions, but due to server limitations, it has not reached all the regions on some devices. So the company is gradually expanding it.

Notably, the carrier-locked variants of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are now receiving the One UI 5.1.1 update in the US. It is available on several network carriers, including Verizon, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Xfinity, and Spectrum Mobile.

Users who are using Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 devices that are affiliated with the above-mentioned carriers can identify the latest update by the firmware version numbers F926USQU4GWH5 and F711USQU5GWH3, respectively.

With the latest One UI 5.1.1 update, users will get a whole new experience in multitasking because it has improved several aspects of it. For instance, you can now minimize apps with S PEN by just hovering over the floating app. The taskbar is now able to hold four recently used apps, which will help you quickly switch apps. The Flex mode now allows more apps to be used. Apart from these, the update brought more improvements to different applications like Quick Share, Samsung Health, Camera, and Gallery.
