Samsung begins rolling out Android 12 to the Galaxy Z Fold 2


Despite not exactly meeting its self-imposed deadlines, the One UI 4 train has picked back up. After the company released a series of bug fixes for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3, SamMobile is reporting that owners of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 are beginning to receive the update.

One UI 4 is based on Android 12 and adds a slew of new Privacy-focused features, along with Material You-like theming options. These include rounded widgets, the ability to color-match your icons and accents based on what wallpaper you are using, and much more. In terms of privacy, you’ll now see notifications in your status bar letting you know when an app is using either the microphone, camera, or both.

Along with the update from One UI 3.1 to One UI 4, Samsung is including the December Android Security Patch. This is something that even Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners have yet to receive, likely due to some of the unforeseen bugs that are included. Google has yet to reveal why the update is not available to all Pixel owners, but it’s still great to see the patch arrive for one of the best phones of 2020.

Once the update arrives, it carries a version number of F916BXXS2FULE. As expected, this is rolling out in waves, as it’s currently only available in select European countries. Provided that there are no more surprise bugs, the firmware should begin rolling out to more regions in the coming days and weeks.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the Android 12 update is smooth sailing from here, but we’ll have to wait and see. If you want to check and see if the update is available on your Fold 2 yet, just jump into the Settings app, tap Software Update and if it has arrived, just follow the on-screen prompts to download and install it.
