Galaxy S21 Series

This latest update is the 14th for the Global, Exynos, S21 series and is currently being rolled out by Samsung and is a later, July, build than the current U.S. Snapdragon update AUFD which has a June build date.

 
This update is for camera, general bugfixes and July security patch.
 
Initially, as always, this is rolling out to the non-carrier branded, stock Samsung CSC codes first.
 
The Galaxy S21 Global, Exynos, 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*BXXU3AUF6 build.
     
    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.
     
    Changelog
     
    • Performance of camera has been improved
    • The security of your device has been improved

I dont find any use of this update, still the camera is bad and the picture quality is very crappy

I assume it'll land in the UK by late August then... another 'Brexit' benefit!

I notice that network/mobile data is not mentionned so I take this will be another totally superficial marketing gimmicky update rather than anything actually meaningful. "Look we do updates"

Can't wait to count down on ditching my S21U.

Made no discernible difference to my (poor) S21U experience.
