Galaxy Z Flip and Z Flip 5G receiving the January 2024 security patch in the US

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Flip 5G back in Android 10. The device has come with Android 10 preinstalled; later, the company has introduced three more major updates as Android 11, Android 12, and Android 13 sequentially. Now these devices are no longer eligible for any major updates, but they are still compatible enough to get some more updates in the form of security patches, and now with the latest development, they are getting a January 2024 security patch.

Notably, the Galaxy Z Flip LTE and Galaxy Z Flip 5G devices are in the US. More specifically, the update is spotted in the locked variant and unlocked variants of the Galaxy Z Flip LTE with the version numbers F700USQS8JXA2 and F700U1UES8JXA1, respectively. The 5G variant is getting an update on the unlocked and locked firmware version numbers F707U1UES6IXA1 and F707USQS6IXA2, respectively.

The January update is one of the minor software updates, so don’t expect any new features or major changes for your device. The update is only aimed at enhancing the overall security of the devices and will make some necessary fixes to eradicate the loopholes, so you will get a more protected environment on your devices.

If you are also using any of the variants of the Galaxy Z Flip smartphone, now you can update it to the latest software version. To do that, you can wait for the notification about the update availability, or you can also manually go for the update through the system’s main settings.
