Samsung has finally released its much anticipated One UI 6 (Android 14) update for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 in the U.S. The update brings several enhancements, some courtesy of AI, for Samsung’s Galaxy foldables, but comes with a larger download size for some users. While Samsung originally planned for many of its devices to receive One UI 6 before the year’s end, the company removed its schedule, leaving users in the dark about when to expect the update.
Owners of Samsung’s latest wave of foldables in the U.S. with a Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 can now download the One UI 6 (Android 14) update. The clamshell foldable will see firmware version F731USQS1AWJ7, while its larger, book-style counterpart sees F946USQU1BWK9. The download size will vary depending on whether users were in the One UI 6 beta or not, with users in the beta program having a smaller download size.
Verizon posted an official changelog for the update, mentioning new Quick Settings via the updated Quick Panel, a new weather widget, and the ability to check the weather without needing to set your current location. Additional improvements include a Bixby text call button, separate picture resolution button in Camera quick settings menu, and separated Battery and Device Care settings in the Settings menu.
Samsung’s One UI 6 update includes several camera enhancements courtesy of AI, boosting the Enhance-X app to make it easier for users to optimize and edit their photos with a singular tap. Clear Lens comes in to remove any annoying blurriness from pictures while document scan helps to digitize important items.
If you own a Z Flip 5 or Fold 5, you can check for updates in your Settings > System Updates. Samsung’s Android 14 update for its 2023 line of foldables comes after the Galaxy S23 series received it in the U.S. The company still has work to do to finish rolling out its latest OS update to quite a few Galaxy devices before the end of the year as originally planned. Users will have to wait until the update is spotted on the remaining devices.
In conclusion, Samsung’s latest One UI 6 (Android 14) update for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 in the U.S. brings a host of new features and improvements, providing users with a more enhanced and efficient experience with their foldable devices.
