Two major updates are rolling out to Galaxy devices starting this week, as Samsung just announced Android 12L for its older foldable smartphones, as well as Wear OS 3.5 for the Galaxy Watch series 4.
Starting today, Android 12L is making its way to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. The update comes as part of One UI 4.1.1, the out-of-the-box software version on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4. .
In addition to last year’s foldable devices, this update will also target the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip/5G, and the original Galaxy Fold.
Android 12L and One UI 4.1.1 bring an improved taskbar experience to Samsung’s large foldable display, which really enhances the experience as we explained in our Galaxy Z Fold review his 4. There are also some new gestures for quickly launching into multitasking modes and the ability to take fine-tuned selfies using the cover screen.
For the Galaxy Z Flip 3, One UI 4.1.1 brings better camera control to the Cover Screen, as well as new quick settings and “Direct Dial” for certain contacts. We took a look at those new features in our review of the Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Watch 4 series has also been updated to Wear OS 3.5, which comes with Samsung’s One UI Watch 4.5 update. Beta testing has been conducted for this update on the Galaxy Watch 4 series for the past few months, and that’s what the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro run out of the box.
What’s new? A big focus is on accessibility, and there’s also full QWERTY keyboard support on Samsung’s built-in keyboard app. Samsung also noted that new watch faces started rolling out a little while ago.
While still based on Tizen, Samsung is also bringing some among these new features for the older Galaxy Watch 3 and Watch Active 2, with two new watch faces and improved snoring detection.
Samsung says all of these updates will begin rolling out this week, with a gradual rollout globally over the coming weeks.
