Samsung rolls out Android 13 (One UI 5) update to last-generation foldable smartphones

It’s only been a few days since Samsung started releasing the long-awaited one Android 13 (One UI 5) update for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, and now the latest generation models are also getting the update.

While not actually confirmed by Samsung, XDA Developers reports that many Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 have noticed that a stable Android 13 build is now being pushed to their phones. The only catch is that the update appears to have rolled out to One UI 5 beta testers in select regions, so if you haven’t signed up for the beta program, you’ll probably have to wait a bit longer.

At the time of writing, the One UI 5 update for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 was rolling out to the global variants (SM-F926B and SM-F711B), but as mentioned earlier, only for those who participated in the One UI 5 beta program.

Another thing we learned about the update is that it comes with the latest November 2022 security patch. If you’ve been a part of the One UI 5 beta program, you already know what to expect from this huge Android update .

Aside from Android 13’s usual new features and improvements, Samsung’s own additions are just as important. New enhanced Bixby features, One UI modes, and plenty of additional customization options are part of the changes Samsung has added to make Android look and feel quite unique on its Galaxy devices.

It’s hard to guess when Samsung will actually start pushing the update to anyone who owns either one Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Galaxy Z Flip 3, but it’s safe to know it won’t be long now. On the other hand, if you are eligible for the One UI 5 Stable Update, you may want to go to the Software Update tab and try to download it.
