Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy S21 receive May 2022 update in the U.S.
It’s one thing to buy an Android smartphone, but it’s another to have it supported. Over the past few weeks, Samsung has been updating its Galaxy smartphones at an astonishing rate. So it comes as no surprise at the start of a new week, we get more updates. This time, Samsung has started pushing its May 2022 update to unlocked variants of both the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the Galaxy S21 series of devices to those in the United States.
The first new firmware, which arrives as F916U1UES2GVD2, is for the Galaxy Z Fold 2. While some updates offer extra perks and additions, this update for the unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 2 is pretty bare-bones, only including the latest security patches for May. In addition to the unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 2 getting updated, Samsung has also delivered updates for the unlocked Galaxy S21 line of phones in the United States.
