Surprise update for European Galaxy phones: patching One UI 6.1 issues?

Here’s a quick rundown:

  • European Galaxy phones received a new update with the May 2024 security patch, despite the June patch being available elsewhere.
  • This might be to address bugs and issues, especially high battery drain, experienced with the recent One UI 6.1 update.
  • Devices affected include the Galaxy S series (S24, S23, S22), Galaxy A54, Galaxy Z Fold/Flip 5, and more.

Samsung recently rolled out the June 2024 security patch to some Galaxy devices. However, a new twist emerged for European users. Instead of the June patch, Samsung released updates with the older May 2024 security patch for several Galaxy smartphones. This includes the flagship S24 series, which received the June patch in other regions.

While these updates don’t offer the latest security enhancements, their revised firmware versions suggest they might address other issues. Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed this, but it could be an attempt to fix bugs and glitches reported by users after updating to One UI 6.1, particularly the concerning issue of excessive battery drain.

The list of affected devices receiving this “mysterious update” includes:

  • Galaxy S24, S24+, S24 Ultra
  • Galaxy S23, S23+, S23 Ultra
  • Galaxy S23 FE
  • Galaxy S22, S22+, S22 Ultra
  • Galaxy A54
  • Galaxy Z Flip 5
  • Galaxy Z Fold 5

For Galaxy A34 and Tab S7 FE users, this update brings the May 2024 security patch for the first time, following their recent upgrade to One UI 6.1.

To check for this update, navigate to Settings > Software update > Download and install on your device. Alternatively, you can download the latest firmware from Samsung’s firmware library (available online).
