The Galaxy Z Fold 2 received the June 2023 security update in the USA precisely one week ago. Now, a similar firmware is rolling out in China on the renamed and redesigned Z Fold 2 for the region.
The Galaxy Z Fold series in China is known by the “Galaxy W” name. It’s that simple. The Galaxy W21 5G in China is the equivalent of the Z Fold 2 in other markets, and following in the footsteps of the international variant, the W-branded phone is now getting the June 2023 update.
The firmware number, W2021ZCU3FWF1, suggests that the update contains more than improved security for the month of June. And the official changelog, although not very rich, does confirm that the Galaxy W21 now offers better overall stability.
Different foldable phone, same update process
Although the Galaxy W21 is quite a different phone from the standard Galaxy Z Fold 2, the update process is very similar. New firmware can be downloaded via the Settings app after accessing the “Software update” section and tapping “Download and install.”
Or, if you happen to own the Galaxy W21 and prefer manual updates, you can download the official firmware files from our website and install the June 2023 update on the device using a Windows PC.
