The Samsung Galaxy S21 is the first Samsung smartphone lineup to have got an update to the stable Android 12-based One UI 4.0. Now, the brand has started to roll out the latest One UI 4.0 based firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy S21 series devices with regular improvements.
The latest Galaxy S21 update can be identified via the PDA firmware version ending BUKG and it seems to be making its way to the European market, with Germany among other regions. Unlike the recent releases, this new OTA will bring in a few improvements to the system functions for a better user experience.
Samsung Galaxy S21 update for different firmware versions
This new update will come for the following devices –
- Samsung Galaxy S20 – G991BXXU3BUKG
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus – G996BXXU3BUKG
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra – G998BXXU3BUKG
Also worth mentioning is that the new improvement update has arrived ahead of December 2021 security update, which essentially means that it is expected to fix many unknown errors and issues while further enhancing the system functions. Following the initial rollout to European regions, it’ll be expanded to other regions soon.
The update will be rolling out in an incremental fashion, which essentially means that a small percentage of Samsung Galaxy S21 users will get it first and it’ll eventually be rolled out to other users. Recently, Verizon rolled out the new One 4.0 update for its Galaxy S21 lineup in the USA and now it is coming to Germany and other regions. The changelog features several improvements to the system performance and enhancements to the stability of the device. Consumers also claim that the new update will fix the irritating display refresh rate issue.
