One UI 5.1 is currently the latest One UI update for Galaxy phones. The Galaxy S23 is the first phone with the One UI 5.1 update. And since last week Samsung started rolling out One UI 5.1 to more Galaxy phones. Today Samsung updated two more Galaxy phones to One UI 5.1. I am talking about Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy A73. Yes, both are over two years old, but luckily these phones are getting the update before many new phones.
Last week, Samsung released One UI 5.1 for the Galaxy S22 series, S21 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and 4, Galaxy Z Flip 3 and 4, Galaxy S20 FE, and Galaxy S21 FE. The Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy A53, and Galaxy A33 have received the update this week. And now two more phones are joining this list.
One UI 5.1 for Galaxy Z Fold 2 is rolling out in Europe with build number F916BXXU2JWB5. And the One UI 5.1 update for Galaxy A73 is available in Malaysia with build number A736BXXU3CWB7. On both phones, the update weighs more than other incremental updates, so make sure to use WiFi to download the update.
Now talking about new features, One UI 5.1 is an important update that improves the device performance along with some new features. The update brings battery widget, advanced gallery search, easy access to Expert RAW option in Camera, storage preference for screenshots and screen recorder. You can check the key features of One UI 5.1 in this story.
If you are a Galaxy Z Fold 2 or Galaxy A73 user from the mentioned region, then you can expect the update soon. Since it is a batch rollout, the update can take a few more days to arrive for some users. While users from other regions have to wait more or maybe not if Samsung brings the update in a couple of days. You can check for the update manually by going to Settings > Software Update > Download and Install.
If you are in a hurry, then you can manually sideload the firmware on your phone, if you know the process. Whether you want to update your phone through OTA or want to sideload the firmware, check out this story for more information about updating Galaxy phones to the new update.
