Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update offers multiple latest features and design enhancements to both these phones.

Soon after rolling out the One UI 6 update to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 phones in the US, Samsung began rolling out the update to the Z Flip 4 and the Z Fold 4 too.
The primary release of the update is available for the Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 on the T-Mobile, Verizon, and MetroPCS networks. It is expected that the brand will release the update to the unlocked units and for the One UI 6 beta users shortly.
