Samsung rolls out a new update for Galaxy Z Fold 2 units in the United States, improving many features of the foldable phone and adding both eSIM and DSDS (Dual SIM Dual Standby Support). The Galaxy Z Fold 2, which came out two years ago, lacked these two rather important features, eSIM and DSDS, but that’s about to change. What should have been a standard monthly security update turned out to be a very important software update for Galaxy Z Fold 2 users. Both unlocked and carrier-bound versions of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 not only get eSIM and DSDS support, but improvements across the board (via XDA Developers).
- overall stability of your device has been improved
- your device’s security has been improved
- the camera functions have been improved
- the Night portrait function has been improved
- the auto framing feature is supported in video mode and some video calling apps
- eSIM support
- Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) support
The second line in the changelog refers to the June 2022 security patch, which is included in this update. Also, Verizon offers a little more detail about the camera improvements added in the update. For example, Galaxy Z Fold 2 users can now take advantage of additional camera improvements:
- Telephoto zoom for Night portrait
- Tele zoom for Pro mode
- Auto Framing for Video Call Effects
- Support for Expert RAW format
- Image quality improvements
Thanks to the newly added eSIM support, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 no longer needs a physical SIM card in their phones. With the addition of DSDS support, the phone now also allows you to instantly switch between physical SIM and eSIM and use them simultaneously.
