Samsung has released a new security update for its S21 series of devices before the start of October, according to Sam Mobile. The S21 series, consisting of the S21, S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra are now receiving the October 2021 security update, making these devices the first to get an October security patch.
This new update by Samsung is now available in regions such as the Philippines and Germany, with other markets set to get this update sooner or later.
What Does this New Update Bring With It?
The latest update for the Galaxy S21 series sports the firmware version G991BXXU3AUIE and offers the October 2021 security patch. It is worth noting that Samsung has not listed the bug fixes or problems that it addresses with this new update.
In case you reside in either Germany or the Philippines, you may already have seen the notification for the update. If this has not happened yet, you can check for the same by going to Settings, then clicking on Software Update and tapping on Download and Install.
What Else is Samsung Working On?
Recently, Twitter leaker Abhishek Yadav spotted a deal on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Note 20 that seems to be too good to be true, and if it is true, you might want to hold off on any other smartphone purchase.
The promotional material shared by Yadav reveals that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will retail for Rs 44,999 in India, which is around $610, whilst the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra will retail for Rs 69,999 or $950.
What this means is that the vanilla Note 20 will likely sell for less than the S20 FE 5G, which is on offer for Rs 50,999 in the country, while the Note 20 Ultra will retail for the same price as the S21 in India during this period.
That is not all, since a bit of detail that some have looked over is that both of these devices will run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC, which is a surprise considering both devices were launched with the Exynos 990 SoC.
This may be a misprint or error, so keep your hopes in check, but it could also mean that Samsung is trying to clear its stock from other markets, especially considering the rather dull hype for the vanilla Note 20.
These prices are however very intriguing and, if they do retail for this amount, certain users will likely pull the trigger on this offer to grab what may be one of the best Notes of all time, if not the best.
