Samsung‘s One UI 5.1.1 update is now available for a few more foldable devices. The company has released the update for the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Z Flip 5G, adding new features and functional improvements to the aging foldables.
Samsung introduced One UI 5.1.1 with its latest foldables and tablets last month. The Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Galaxy Tab S9 series all run the new One UI version out of the box. The company is now pushing the new features to eligible older models.
As of this writing, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is getting the One UI 5.1.1 update in Asia, Europe, and Australia. The new firmware build number for the phone in these regions is F916BXXU4KWH7 (F916NKSU2KWH7 in South Korea). Samsung will expand the rollout to the US and other remaining markets soon.
The Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Flip 5G are also initially picking up the One UI 5.1.1 in these markets. The updated build numbers for the two variants of the original clamshell foldable are F700FXXUDKWH7 and F707BXXUAKWH7, respectively. A wider rollout for these phones should also follow shortly.
As far as the new features are concerned, Samsung is making it easier to switch from pop-up view to split screen on foldable smartphones. The taskbar can also now show more recent apps, while the Recents screen offers better app previews. The Flex Mode panel works with more apps as well.

A bunch of budget and mid-range Galaxy tablets will get One UI 5.1.1
With the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Z Flip 5G getting One UI 5.1.1, Samsung is done pushing the latest One UI version to its folding phones. It has already updated the Galaxy ZF Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3 to One UI 5.1.1. The rollouts may be limited to select markets, but that’s a different matter. All eligible users will get the update over the next few days.
Meanwhile, Samsung still has some tablets waiting for One UI 5.1.1. So far, it has only pushed the update to its eligible flagship models — Galaxy Tab S8 series and Galaxy Tab S7 series. The company has confirmed that the update will also be available to the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, Galaxy Tab A8, Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, Galaxy Tab Active 3, and Galaxy Tab Active 4. It will gradually cover them all with One UI 5.1.1 in the coming weeks.
