Galaxy Z Flip, A71, A51 & more get Samsung’s June update in the US
Samsung may have already released the July security patch, but a few Galaxy devices are still awaiting the June update, at least in some markets. The company is pushing the older monthly SMR (Security Maintenance Release) to a bunch of devices in the US. The Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy A71, Galaxy A51, Galaxy A51 5G, Galaxy A21, and Galaxy A13 5G are all getting last month’s update.
The June security update is available for carrier-locked and unlocked variants of the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Flip 5G in the US. The new firmware build numbers for the former model are F700USQU7IWE1 (carrier-locked) and F700U1UEU7IWE1 (unlocked). Those for the 5G version are F707USQU5HWE3 and F707U1UEU5HWE3 (via). The rollout is widely available on all networks. Samsung is pushing some revisions to terms and conditions but nothing more. Of course, that’s in addition to last month’s security fixes.
The Galaxy A71 is also widely getting Samsung’s June update in the US. The phone is picking up the new SMR with the build number A716USQU9GWF7. It could be the same changelog for this mid-range handset as well. That’s because the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A51 5G are also getting the same changes. The rollout for these two models is currently limited to carrier-locked variants, though. The new build numbers are A515USQUAFWF3 and A516USQUDGWF1, respectively. Unlocked units should get the update soon.
Galaxy A21 and Galaxy A13 5G are also getting the June update
The Galaxy A21 is another Samsung phone that recently started picking up the June SMR in the US. Once again, the Korean firm has kept the update limited to carrier-locked units. It’s getting the update with firmware version A215USQSACWF1. For a change, this release is all about the security fixes for June 2023. There’s nothing else here. A wider rollout should follow in the coming days.
Lastly, the Galaxy A13 5G is joining Samsung’s June update party in the US. The budget handset is getting the build number A136USQU5DWF6 (carrier-locked) and the same changelog as the Galaxy Z Flip series. Unlocked units have yet to pick up the June SMR. The 4G-only Galaxy A13 received the June SMR in the US a few weeks back. If you’re using any of these Galaxy smartphones and haven’t yet received last month’s security update, watch out for it in the coming days. You can use the Settings app on your phone (Software update menu) to check for updates manually.
