Samsung’s November update reaches Galaxy Z Fold 5 and more devices
Samsung has released new updates for a bunch of Galaxy smartphones. The Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy S20 FE, and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are all picking up new updates. While none are getting Android 14, the company is pushing the latest security patch to them. The November SMR (Security Maintenance Release) patches more than 60 vulnerabilities.
Addition of Updates for Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Others
A few days back, Samsung released the November security update for its recent foldables in the US. The Galaxy Z Fold 5, Flip 5, Fold 4, and Flip 4 all picked up the new security fixes. The firm later expanded the update for the Flip 5 to international markets. The Fold 5 and Fold 4 are now following suit. The former is getting the update globally with firmware version F946BXXS1AWJ2, while the latter is picking it up in Europe with build version F936BXXS4DWJ2.
Additionally, Samsung has released the latest security update for the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The 2021 foldable is getting the latest security fixes in Hong Kong and Taiwan with the firmware build number F9260ZSS4GWK2. The company will bring the update to other markets, including the US, in the coming weeks. Like its newer siblings, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 isn’t receiving anything more than the November SMR here.
Updates for Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy Note 10 Lite
The Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are the other two Samsung smartphones that recently started picking up this month’s security update. The 4G/LTE model of the former is receiving the new SMR in Latin America with the build number G780FXXSDFWJ8. That for the latter is N770FXXS9HWJ1, available widely in Europe, the UK, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The changelog is more or less the same as the foldables.
Android 14 Updates for Select Phones
As of this writing, Samsung’s November update isn’t available for the Galaxy S20 FE 5G. However, it shouldn’t be long before the Korean behemoth covers all eligible units globally. The phone (including the LTE model) isn’t eligible for Android 14 though, nor is the Galaxy Note 10 Lite. The five foldable smartphones mentioned above will all get the new Android version along with Samsung’s One UI 6.0 custom skin.
The Korean firm is expected to push the big update to these phones and more before the end of the year. Newer models tend to get updates before the older ones, but this isn’t a hard-and-fast rule. As usual, you can check for new updates from the Settings app. We at Android Headlines will also keep you posted with Samsung’s Android 14 rollouts, so stay tuned.
