One UI 4 based on Android 12 comes to Galaxy Z Flip 5G users in the US
Samsung saw fit to call its latest clamshell foldable the Galaxy Z Flip3, despite the fact its immediate predecessor was not so much a second generation as a 5G version of the inaugural model. Despite this slight impression of having been something of an afterthought, it seems the Z Flip 5G will not be left behind in terms of software support.
Its maker has now expanded the roll-out of One UI 4 for this foldable smartphone to the US market, whereas it had only been available for a couple of countries such as South Korea prior to this. The new firmware is reportedly available in 2 specific flavors: F707U1UEU2EUL9, for unlocked units, or F707USQS2EUL9 for those locked to a carrier.
It might be found on the Software Update page of the clamshell's Settings in the US from now. Therefore, its users might be able to keep its hardware - which includes a display that is not all that much of a downgrade in terms of size or resolution from that of the newer Z Flip3 - going for that much longer.
