Since Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Z Fold 3 model last year in August, it became clear to everyone that we are talking about a powerful smartphone. Packed with a futuristic design and impressive hardware specs, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 was a good example of what the South Korean giant has to offer best.

Samsung also hasn’t neglected its Galaxy Z Fold 3 when it comes to the new Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update that keeps rolling out for the company’s top models. According to SAMMOBILE, both the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 models of Samsung are now getting the new update. For the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the update comes with the firmware version F926BXXU2DVK3. But when it comes to the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the firmware version of the One UI 5.0 update is F711BXXU3DVK3.

Europeans get it first

If you live in Europe and you own either one of the Fold 3 or Flip 3 models from Samsung, you should already see the update option displayed on your smartphone. But if you live in other parts of the world, there’s no use getting too upset, either! In just a few days, the new update should expand to other continents as well!

The November 2022 security patch is also included in the new One UI 5.0 update, which means that you have another strong reason to be excited! Both Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 models were released by Samsung last year in August, and they came with Android 11 out of the box.

If patience is not among your virtues and you don’t like the idea of simply waiting for a notification on your phone to invite you to update, you can also manually check if the update has arrived. To do so, you must head over to the Settings menu, select Software update, and ultimately hit Download and install.
