[UPDATE] Now available for the U.K.
Only 11 days after the initial release of stock Android 12, Samsung have begun rolling out their second official stock update of Android 12, One UI 4, for the S21 series of international devices.
With a Build date of just 3 days ago, it would seem that this is a bugfix update.
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*BXXU3BUK8build 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*BXXU3BUKG
Download = 330.59MB
Build date = 23 November 2021
Release date = 26 November 2021
Camera version = 12.0.00.83 (no change)
One UI version = 4.0
Android Security patch = 01 November 2021
This is the 21st stable update for the Exynos model in 305 days. Average = 1 update every 15 days.
TOP TIP: Wipe the phone's cache partition and use the Galaxy App Booster after updating.

I must say that I am impressed with the battery life on this BUKG update.
Normally I do not comment on battery life until the phone settles down after 2 or 3 charge cycles but this first charge since updating with 75% used and no Power saving is looking good. Certainly as good as Android 11, if not better. Am really liking this BUKG update so far.
Im having issues installing the apps on the 998B. What a mess this launch has been, I hope this fixes the problem. No apps at all from google play store.
Nothing for the U.K. yet for the BUKG update.
Samsung has increased their staged roll-out, today, to these countries/carriers...
