Samsung is now rolling out a new update to its latest Galaxy S21 flagship offerings. The lineup consists of three devices namely the original S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra. In the new update, the chaebol has improved the camera and device performance of all three devices. For those who’re unaware, the Galaxy S21 lineup is still among the best camera phones that you can buy right now. Well, it looks like the company has further improved it. Here is everything you need to know about it.
Galaxy S21 new update packs camera and device improvements!
The new update is currently only rolling out in the Indian market. The new software update carries the firmware version G99xxXXU2AUC8 weighing around 1GB. Considering the size, it is safe to say that the update brings some solid improvements under the hood. Also, we recommend using stable WiFi connectivity to download the update. The official changelog mentions the improvement related to camera and device performance. Sadly, there’s no specific mention of what these improvements are.
It looks like one such feature is the addition of Portrait mode with the regular camera sensor. To recall, the device only supported the mode in pair with telephoto or ultrawide lens. This new addition makes the camera module even more versatile for users out there. We’re hoping the update might have added some more features under the hood. Well, if you have noticed any, then make sure to let us known by hopping on the comments down below. Apart from this, the update also brings the latest April 2021 Android security patch.
If you reside in India and own any of the devices, then you might have already received the update notification. That’s not the case? well, then you might want to check for it manually by heading over to Settings>>Software Update>>Download and Install. We’re expecting the update to expand to more regions and markets in the coming days or weeks.
