Galaxy S21 June update with camera lag fix rolling out internationally


Last updated: May 31st, 2021 at 21:27 UTC+02:00

What could be one of the most important updates for the Galaxy S21 series for many customers is rolling out internationally starting today, after it was released in Samsung’s home country a few days ago. This is the June 2021 security update that brings a fix for the lag issues in the Galaxy S21 phones’ camera app, as Samsung revealed earlier today.

As we reported a few days back, the camera app on the Galaxy S21 series phones can lag while doing the most basic of tasks, such as zooming in and out on a scene by switching between the main and zoom cameras or switching between shooting modes. According to Samsung, the lag should be fixed in the June update, but to what extent the company has managed to do it is something we will have to test the new firmware to find out. We’ll update this article with our findings soon; if you’ve already downloaded the update, you can tell us if you see any improvements on your phone.

The international rollout of the June 2021 update for the Galaxy S21 series has started in the UAE and is bound to reach more markets before the end of the week. You can check if the update is available for your phone over the air by opening its settings, navigating to Software update, and selecting Download and install. The new firmware is also available in our archives and can be used to manually upgrade the S21, S21+, or S21 Ultra to the latest software (G99xBXXU3AUE8) using a Windows PC.
