Only 7 days after their second December update, BUL6, Samsung has begun rolling out their 5th 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...
This latest release replaces the previous G99*BXXU3BUKG/BUL1/BUL6 builds on the international devices.
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.
The update = G99*BXXS3BULC
Download = 244.04MB
Build date = 21 December 2021
Release date = 24 December 2021
Camera version = 12.0.00.83 (no change)
One UI version = 4.0
Android Security patch = 01 December 2021
This is the 24th stable update for the Exynos model in 329 days. Average = 1 update every 14 days.
TOP TIP: Wipe the phone's cache partition and use the Galaxy App Booster after updating.
(N.B. This post will be updated as more information becomes available)
Looks like Samsung are not wasting any time in rolling out this BULC firmware update.
It has already been pushed to numerous, stock, non-carrier branded phones, worldwide with more being added all the time.
A very Merry Christmas to one and all
