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...

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

This latest release replaces the previous G99*BXXU3BUKG/BUL1/BUL6 builds on the international devices.

Changelog

  • Device security improved
  • Bugfixes
  • After upgrading you will not be able to downgrade to the old software because of updates to the security policy.

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.

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.

Got this morning UK S21U but with DBT CSC. 👍😊 Overall performance improved. Less heat. Nice update. No issues at all. Not tested battery life as my device is still on charge. Screenshot_20211224-062034_Software update.jpg
