Cheaper ticket to One UI 4.1.1
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 have both been updated with the latest version of One UI available to the public at large, namely One UI 4.1.1.
This version of One UI debuted with the newer Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4. But thanks to Samsung’s timely updates, the 2021 foldable phones can now enjoy similar features as the latest models, including new multi-window gestures and a dedicated taskbar for improved mobile productivity and multitasking.
If you want to own a Samsung foldable phone that runs the latest firmware but you don’t wish to pay the full price for the 2022 models, you might be able to get a lot more value from the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 if you buy them at their lowest prices yet.
