The Korean giant recently released the September 2022 security patch along with its details. The company provided the list of devices supporting this update on its website. Now the names of new devices such as Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 can be seen in this list; While some previous devices, including the Galaxy Note 9, have been removed from it.
