Samsung recently released the One UI 2.1 version for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite. At the same time, the company also began sending out a new software update for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. This update not only brings the April security patch for the Galaxy Z Flip but also enhances the smartphone’s “tripod mode” (Flex mode). When using the built-in camera app in “Tripod Mode”, the viewfinder is always on the top side of the phone, while the control buttons are on the bottom. After updating, you can flip it by just double-clicking the preview window in “Tripod Mode”.
When you fold the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to an angle of 90-degrees or close to 90-degrees, the “Tripod Mode” will activate in specific applications. The new software update comes with build number F700FXXU1ATD6. This update has been spotted in Italy and should arrive at other regions anytime soon.
