The corporation names them SVEs (Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures) (Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures). Several of these vulnerabilities are deemed to be of critical severity.

Of course, the US units of the Galaxy Z Flip are a little late to the May SMR party. Their overseas siblings took up the update about a month ago. Samsung has even started pushing out the June security patch to its smartphones. Almost a dozen Galaxy smartphone and tablet models have already gotten this month’s security patch.

The June SMR provides updates for more than 70 vulnerabilities. As usual, these contain vulnerabilities identified in Google’s version of Android as well as SVEs. You can anticipate additional eligible Galaxy devices receiving the updated security patch in the coming days and weeks, including the Galaxy Z Flip. When the deployment begins, we will notify you.

If an OTA update is available, you will be prompted to download it. If it doesn’t display any pending updates, try back again after a few days. Stay tuned for the June security update.
