After the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S22, Samsung has now released the Android 14 update for its latest foldables. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 are picking up the big update, which introduces One UI 6.0, in the US. A global rollout should be just around the corner.

Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 receive Android 14

Samsung released the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update for the Galaxy S23 series in late October. It took a while for the update to be available globally. Earlier this week, the company treated Galaxy S22 users with the long-awaited update. It has now quickly pushed the new Android version to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5.


As of this writing, the latest Samsung foldables picking up Android 14 in the US. More specifically, the update is available for carrier-locked units on Verizon’s network. The new firmware build number for the Fold model is F946USQU1BWK9, while that for the Flip model is F731USQU1BWK9. It shouldn’t be long before Samsung covers both carrier-locked and unlocked units across all networks.

One UI 6.0 is a major update for Galaxy devices. It brings plenty of new features, functional improvements, and other changes, including goodies that are part of Android 14. Samsung has revamped the Quick Settings layout for enhanced usability. The notification panel is getting a UI overhaul too. Switching to text calling is now easier with a Bixby Text Call button on the call screen.

Elsewhere, we have new and improved homescreen widgets, a separate menu for Battery and Device Care settings, and enhanced privacy and security, including an Auto Blocker. One UI 6.0 also brings tons of new camera features and editing tools to Galaxy devices. For models with high-resolution cameras, Samsung has added a dedicated button to quickly change the camera resolution.

Overall, there’s plenty to look forward to in this update. If you’re using the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in the US or any other country—Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S22 also, for that matter—and have yet to receive the Android 14 update, you should soon. As usual, you can check for new updates on your Samsung phone through the Software update menu in the Settings app.

Samsung’s Android 14 rollout finally appears to be well and truly underway. The Korean behemoth should soon push the big update to more Galaxy devices. The Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Fold 4, Galaxy Z Flip 4, and dozens of other models will receive Android 14 with One UI 6.0 in the coming weeks.
