Samsung’s been doing a stellar job at keeping its smartphones updated with new security patches lately, but there have been some hiccups, and it looks like the June 2021 security patch rollout for the Galaxy S21 series is taking longer than expected. This is a fairly important firmware release — more so than regular security updates — because the June patch is supposed to fix the camera lag issues.

Samsung began the June 2021 security patch rollout for the Galaxy S21 series at the end of May. The initial release was identified by firmware number G99xxXXU3AUE8 and debuted in South Korea. The June 2021 security patch was then released internationally, but it only reached a couple of markets before Samsung halted the rollout process and began seeding a second June firmware update identified as G99xxXXU3AUF2.

Samsung has slowed down the June rollout for the Galaxy S21 series

The second firmware update for the month of June has enjoyed a wider release in more markets, including Bulgaria, Singapore, the UAE, and the Nordic countries. However, the rollout in additional markets appears to have slowed down to the point where it may have been halted.

Samsung is sure taking its time to release the second June firmware update for the Galaxy S21 series worldwide, and now that we’re halfway through the month of June, it won’t be long before Samsung starts rolling out the July 2021 security patch.

We’re not sure why the Galaxy S21’s latest firmware update rollout has become so slow, but we’ll keep you up to speed as soon as we find out more. In the meantime, feel free to let us know in the comment section if and where your Galaxy S21 series has received the G99xxXXU3AUF2 firmware update.
