Google has a long tradition of launching new Android security fixes for Pixel smartphones on the first Monday of each month, which means we only have a few days until the launch of the Android security bulletin in June 2022. However, That doesn’t mean other OEMs can’t beat Google in their own game. Not surprisingly, Samsung once again managed to win the race. Following the release of patches in June 2022 on the Galaxy Tab S7, the Korean OEM is now introducing the new set of fixes for the Galaxy S21 series.
The new version number is G99xBXXU5CVEBand is intended for the global Exynos 2100-powered versions of the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra. The size of the incremental upgrade package is almost 1 GB, which indicates that there are several changes under the hood in addition to the new SPL. The new software is currently available in DBT region, which is Samsung’s code name for Germany.
In particular, there is no change in the basic bootloader version. As a result, powerful users still have the option to downgrade and revert to an older version even after installing this update on their Galaxy S21 drives.

The update is expected to move to more markets in the coming days. If you haven’t received the OTA notification on your phone so far, you can check it manually by going to the Software Update section in the Settings application.
Keep in mind that Samsung will launch the update in stages, and it may take some time for it to appear on your device. However, you can skip the queue and install the new version right now by manually displaying it on your Galaxy device.
