Samsung has begun rolling out their 8th Android 12 release for the S21 series of international devices.

Initially, as always, this is a staged rollout to the non-carrier branded, stock Samsung CSC codes first.

The Galaxy S21 international devices that will receive this update are...

  • S21 5G model SM-G991B
  • S21+ 5G model SM-G996B
  • S21 Ultra 5G model SM-G998B

This latest release replaces the previous G99*BXXU4BULF/BVA9 builds on the international devices.

Changelog

  • February Android Security update
  • Bugfixes

It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you. Alternatively, you can connect to the Samsung PC suite, Smart Switch and check via that.

And about time too - I was beginning to think that we'd skip the February update and get the March one instead!

Rumours had it we were getting oneui 4.1 along with February update (s21 ultra exynos),so this isn't the case now then.

[UPDATE]

Whilst there has been a widespread release of this BVB1 update for the G99*B devices to the rest of the world, by-and-large, Europe has been by-passed so far.

 

At this late in the month, Samsung may just choose to skip the February Android Security patch and go straight to March and hopefully include One UI 4.1 to placate Europeans.

In the same boat as you! S21 Ultra 256gb unbranded in the UK. I'm still on January 1st 2022 software. Others on here are also saying the same, so seems like it's not just us. Someone said they might skip out Feb, and go straight for March, which would make sense now! Could be to do with the release of the S22 Maybe?
