    Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 series in early 2021 with Android 11 onboard. It received the Android 12 update in late 2021 and the Android 13 update in late 2022. The phones have already received the Android 14-based One UI 6.0 beta update in some countries, and the stable update might be released later this month or early next month.
