We said it a few hours ago, Samsung is likely to complete the project by the end of the week rollout of the new One UI 5.1 on all Galaxy S and Galaxy Zs still covered by software support. After all, in Seoul they travel at a brisk pace, and the only ones missing are the Galaxy S Fan Editions even if it now seems like a matter of hours.

The Galaxy Z range is almost complete: the second generation leaflets were missing, but the rollout of the One UI 5.1 seems to have started from Germany for the active Galaxy Z Fold 2and although we have no confirmations regarding the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Samsung usually launches rollouts for products of the same generation at the same time, so if the build is not already on its way, it too is close.

The One UI 5.1 comes to Galaxy Z Fold 2 with build F916BXXU2JWB5 which contains the patches Android Security’s February 2023, and as mentioned the first reports come from Germany. Soon, however, the rollout should also start in other countries, including Italy. Below is the official changelog. We will update you if we get reports about Galaxy Z Flip 5G.
