December security patch rolls out to Galaxy Z Flip 5G

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G has just received the December security patch
The original Samsung foldable from 2020, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, has just received this month's security patch rollout from Samsung. As per tradition, the company releases these patches on a monthly basis for all its devices, with of course the latest additions taking precedence over flagships from previous years. 

This is why it look until the near end of the month for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, but the update is finally officially available for download in the United States. The South Korean giant had released the patch to several international markets first, but if you're in the United States and have been kept waiting, your turn has finally come

To check if the latest patch is available for download on your device, you can go to  Settings > Software update > Download and install. Any pending updates that have not automatically downloaded will be listed there.

This particular update bears the firmware version F707USQS2DUL1 in the United States, while for international users, the firmware version should show up as F707U1UES2DUL1. 

As could be expected, the main function for the latest security patch—as with all previous monthly updates—is to fix the latest discovered bugs and vulnerabilities in the device. Apart from that, the update also brings improvements to device stability.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G was released in July of last year, a few months after the initial Galaxy Z Flip launch. Contrary to popular belief, the difference between the two devices is more than just 5G wireless connection support; the Z Flip 5G also upgraded to a newer processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. The standard Z Flip 4G, on other hand, uses the Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC.

Despite the name gap, the Galaxy Z Flip is only the last predecessor to the most recent Galaxy Z Flip 3 flagship. Samsung ended up skipping a number so it could tidily match names with its counterpart flagship, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which launched at the same time this year.
