Galaxy S21 series gets second May 2021 software update in India

Samsung had released the May 2021 security update to the Galaxy S21 series in Europe during the last week of April and in India a few days ago. Last week, the company released another May 2021 software update to its latest flagship smartphones, starting with Germany. Now, the second May 2021 update has reached the Galaxy S21 series in India.

The Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra have started getting new updates in India with firmware version G99xBXXU3AUE1. The official changelog doesn’t say much apart from mentioning that the update improves the overall stability of functions on the new smartphones. The update has a download size of over 200MB, and it is better to use a Wi-Fi network to download it. It is possible that the new update includes fixes for the vulnerabilities that were found in Qualcomm’s 5G modems. It might also include other general bug fixes and performance improvements.

If you are a Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, or Galaxy S21 Ultra user in India, you can check for the new update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. The new firmware can also be downloaded from our firmware database for flashing manually.
