February 2024 Update Now Live for US Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5

So, Samsung just dropped their February 2024 security update for the Galaxy S23 series in the US. And guess what? It’s like they’ve opened the floodgates because this update is now making waves across several more devices. We’re talking about the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, the Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, and even the Galaxy A53. Yep, the S23 lineup is getting some company.

Now, onto the juicy details. Samsung kicked off the February SMR (Security Maintenance Release) party last week. The Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 were the lucky firsts. Fast forward to earlier this week, and boom – the Galaxy S21 series, the S23 FE, and a bunch of other devices joined the fun. But here’s the kicker: in the US, this whole shindig started with the S23 series just yesterday.

Let’s dive a bit deeper, shall we? Initially, this update was all about the factory-unlocked units of the 2023 flagship trio, sporting the build number S91*U1UES2BXAD. But hold your horses – it’s now rolling out to carrier-locked units too. The new build number? S91xUSQS2BXAD. For those waiting in other countries, hang tight. It’s coming.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 in the US are also getting some love with the February SMR. Both carrier-locked and unlocked units are in on the action. We’ve got build numbers F711USQS6HXAF and F711U1UES6HXAC to prove it. For the Fold model, though, it’s a bit of a VIP situation – carrier-locked units only, folks. The new build number there is F926USQS5HXAC.

Oh, and let’s not forget the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5. They’re also basking in the glory of the latest security patch in the US. Samsung’s dishing out updates for both carrier-locked and unlocked units of these models. The new build numbers? For the former, it’s F946USQS2BXAD and F946U1UES2BXAD, and for the latter, F731USQS2BXAD and F731U1UES2BXAD. International versions, you’re up next.

But wait, there’s more. The Galaxy A53 is also snagging the new SMR in the US. This 2022 premium mid-range smartphone’s carrier-locked variants are now sporting firmware version A536USQS9DXA9. And Samsung’s not stopping there. They’re planning to roll out the update for unlocked units and international versions too. This month’s security release is patching up 69 vulnerabilities across the Galaxy family. How’s that for a security blanket?
