One UI 5.1 is available for Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip 4


Samsung is on a roll today. The company has released the One UI 5.1 update to a host of Galaxy smartphones. After the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3, the new One UI version is now available for the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip 4.

Like earlier rollouts, Samsung has initially released the One UI 5.1 update for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra in Europe. The new firmware build number for the phones is G98**XXUFHWAK (via SamMobile). The rollout for the Galaxy Z Flip 4 has also begun in Europe. The updated firmware version for the foldable is F721BXXU1CWAC. The February 2023 Android security patch, which fixes more than 50 vulnerabilities, is part of the package. Samsung should expand the rollout to more markets, including the US, in the coming days.

One UI 5.1 brings plenty of new features and improvements. We have new tools in the stock camera app, while the Gallery app adds a Shared Family Album. The update also adds new editing features, including support for the remastering of downloaded GIF files for enhanced resolution and clarity. Samsung Notes supports collaboration during a video call on Google Meet with One UI 5.1. Bixby Text Call is also available in English. There are some foldable-specific features as well.

This is the last major update for the Galaxy S20 series

One UI 5.1 is the final major feature update for the Galaxy S20 series. Samsung launched the phones in early 2020 with Android 10 out of the box. Over the past three years, the devices have received updates to Android 11, Android 12, and Android 13. They aren’t covered under the company’s extended support policy that guarantees four generations of major Android upgrades. As such, the Galaxy S20 trio will not get Android 14. That also means no more major feature updates.

The Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra will only receive security updates going forward. Those updates will come for at least one more year, if not longer. But right now, users have a major feature update to look forward to. As usual, you can check for updates from the Settings app. Simply navigate to Software update > Download and install and you’ll be prompted to download the latest available OTA (over the air) update. If you don’t see any updates, wait a few days and check again.
