Has anyone in the UK gotten the April Software Update on their S21 Ultra? It has the camera update but I haven't gotten it so far?

Yes I have but it doesn't bring anything new to the party (or so I noticed).

Where did you get your phone from?


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.
Current Devices:

Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
Samsung Galaxy Buds2 > Model: SM-R177NZKAEUA.

It's from the US. I've been reading that the April update brings a camera update to the portrait mode?

If you purchased it from the US and using it in the UK, you will never get any of these updates.

I'm in the UK on O2 and I haven't received this update yet, I have spoken to O2 and they just point me towards Samsung even though Samsung have rolled it out 🤷

Is there a way to bypass O2 and somehow update through Samsung?

Maybe it's different with the Snapdragon variants then. I know that with the Exynos you won't get updates if used in a country different from the country it was sold in.

The update may not even be available for the Snapdragon variant just yet. Have you checked? Samsung are quick to release Exynos updates but slower with Snapdragon.

Smart Switch for PC may help the OP.
@Hallinandez you need a different csc to get the update. This involves changing the csc 02U to BTU. Sankey can do this. It costs a little. I changed mine from EVR (EE) to BTU in less than a minute.
