Last month, Samsung initially started testing the Android 13 based One UI 5.0 skin on the Galaxy Z Fold 4. One week later, the firm rolled out the second beta of the foldable phone with bug fixes. But still, a bunch of issues needs to be addressed. Today, the South Korean tech giant released a new beta aka One UI 5.0 third beta which addresses many pending issues, including the battery consumption issue, status bar disappear issue, and many more. Read along to know all details about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 One UI 5.0 third beta update.

Samsung has started pushing the new beta build to Fold 4 with the ZVK1 build number. And as an incremental beta, it weighs only 541MB in size. You can quickly download it on your smartphone and try out the more refined version of One UI 5.0 on your foldable smartphone. Just like the previous beta, this build is based on the November 2022 security patch. The third beta is currently available in India and will also be released in other regions in the coming days.

Moving to the changes, then the update brings a fix for the faster battery consumption issue, fixes the issue where the phone crashes while using the camera or settings shortcut on the lock screen, the Korean language input issue when Bluetooth Keyboard is connected, Status bar disappear issue, camera app force close issue, and more.

If your Galaxy Z Fold 4 is running on the One UI 5.0 beta and you are facing any of the afore-listed bugs on your device, then you can upgrade your device to the third beta. If your device is running on One UI 5.0 beta or second beta, then you will receive the incremental third beta over the air, in case you missed the OTA notification, you can navigate to Settings > Software Update > Download and Install, if there’s a new update you can install it on your device, else you can wait for a few days. If you want to install the update make sure to take a backup of your phone and charge it to 50% at least.

As per the One UI 5.0 roadmap, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is slated to receive the stable aka public build this month, so we can expect one more beta ahead of public release, or if everything goes fine with this build, Samsung may directly release the stable build in next two weeks.
