So, as we have entered the month of July, Samsung phones are slowly getting the July security update. The latest device to join the bandwagon is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung has already updated a bunch of Galaxy phones with the July 2021 security patch. FYI, the rollout began with the 2019 flagship, Galaxy S10. Later July security update was served to the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy S20, Note 10, Note 20, Galaxy A52, Galaxy Tab A 8.0, and the Tab Active 2.
Now, it is time for the flip phone from Samsung, the Galaxy Z Flip to be treated with the latest security update. The software is rolling out for the Z Flip model SM-F707B.
To recall, Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip back in mid-2020. It was released with Android 10 One UI 2.5 out of the box and received the Android 11 One UI 3.0 update in December 2020.
It is in line to receive the upcoming Android 12 One UI 4.0 update. But for now, it is currently listed under Samsung’s monthly security update schedule.
Besides, it is advised to install the latest security update on your phone, because it brings fixes for severe vulnerabilities related to privacy and security. Moreover, it also adds a bugfix for the Android Auto-related bug, reported by several users.
