During the Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung not only unveiled its latest flagship Samsung Galaxy S20 series of smartphones (including the Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra) but it also launched its second-ever foldable smartphone, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has a vertically folding mechanism and has very quickly gone on sale after being announced. The company has been even quicker when it comes to pushing updates for the device as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has already received its first update. Let’s see what all improvements/fixes the first software update for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has brought to the table.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip US Variants Receive the First Software Update: Here’s What’s New
The first software update for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip devices has been rolled out to the US variants as of now. The update adds the new Single Take camera feature that the company has made available to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series devices. So, what is the Single Take camera mode? Well, it is a one-stop solution for photography, as it takes several photos and video clips with the different cameras on the device for up to 10 seconds. Much like a burst mode (Samsung indeed dubs it as a “burst mode turned beast mode”), the Single Take feature then lets you decide as to what kind of picture or video you like the most.
The new update for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip devices allows them to utilize the same. Furthermore, the update comes with an option to switch between wide and ultra-wide view mode when the cover screen of the device is being used as a viewfinder for capturing photos. Moreover, the latest update comes with the February 2020 security patch for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip devices.
The latest software update comes with the build number F700U1UEU1ATAR and is currently rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip devices Over the Air. In case you own one, you can try updating your device by hitting the settings menu on your device and checking for the update from there. The update sizes around 211.64MB, and we would suggest that our readers back up their important data before tapping that update button on the bottom of their device screens. After all, its better safe than sorry, right?
