    Samsung ended last year with the release of the Android 14 update and started the new year with the release of the January 2024 security update. The Galaxy S21 FE is now getting a new security update, and it is currently available in some European countries. It could expand to more countries and regions in the coming days.

    The new software update for the Galaxy S21 FE is available in Ireland, Spain, and the UK. It comes with firmware version G990BXXS6FWL5 and includes the January 2024 security patch that fixes 75 security-related software flaws discovered in the previous version of the software. The update doesn't bring any new features or performance improvements. It could include screen burn-in protection, though, which was removed from some phones when the Android 14 update arrived.

    If you have a Galaxy S21 FE and live in any of the countries mentioned above, you can check for the new update on your device. To do that, you have to open the Settings app and navigate to Software update » Download and install. Alternatively, you can flash the new firmware file manually using a computer running Windows OS and the Odin tool. You have to download the appropriate firmware file from our database and back up all your important data from the phone.

    Samsung released the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 update to the Galaxy S21 FE last month. After that, the company released the December 2023 security patch to close off the year. The device was launched with Android 12 onboard and has received two major Android OS updates. It will get two more Android OS updates in the future.

    If you are looking to upgrade from your current Galaxy S21 FE, you should check out the Galaxy S23 FE. You can watch its full review in our video below.
