Samsung releases One UI 5.1 for Galaxy Z Flip (OG) and Galaxy A23

These days Samsung is providing its newest custom skin – One UI 5.1 to eligible phones. The South Korean tech giant has already released the upgrade for its premium phones which were released in the last two years. Now the company is shifting its focus to new mid-rangers and old premium phones. Today, Samsung rolls out the new One UI 5.1 update for the original Galaxy Z Flip and the new Galaxy A23 smartphone.

Samsung kicks off the new software with February 2023 monthly security patch and a stack of new features. As it is a major upgrade, it weighs more than security updates, so make sure you have enough space on your phone.

At the moment, the update is in a rolling phase and will be available to everyone in a matter of time. If you are a Galaxy A23 user, then currently, the OTA is seeding in Ukraine with the A235FXXU2CWB4 firmware version. Whereas the Galaxy Z Flip picks up the new software with the F700FXXUAJWAD build number, available to users in Australia.

Moving to the list of changes, then Samsung is pushing One UI 5.1 to Galaxy A23 and Z Flip with features such as a new battery widget, support for family sharing album in the Gallery app, quick access to the Expert RAW camera app, improved AR emojis and AR zone, enhancements for stock apps, collaborating in Samsung Notes, Samsung Internet, and more.

Whether you own Galaxy A23 or Galaxy Z Flip, you can easily update your phone to One UI 5.1. As I said earlier, the update is currently in a rolling phase, if you haven’t received the update on your phone, you can check it manually by navigating to Settings > Software Upgrade > Download and Install to check the new software. Since it is a batch rollout, the update can take a few more days to arrive for some users.

If you are in a hurry, then you can manually sideload the firmware on your phone, if you know the process. Whether you want to update your phone through OTA or want to sideload the firmware, check out this story for more information about updating Galaxy phones to the new update.
