Just after a few delays, these phones are now getting this June security patch. Lately, Samsung has been really good with sending out security patches on time for it’s flagship phones, though, sometimes even before Google does themselves. This month, though, things have been very different, and it’s only now that the June security patches are headed into the Galaxy S21, S21+ and the S21 Ultra units that are currently sold in the United States.
This delay has to do with Samsung working overtime in fixing some of the camera lag problems that has been reported widely right before the update was originally supposed to be released. Since the company has not outright said that it decided to also incorporate the fixes in the June update, it becomes pretty obvious on what happened. Just after about two botched rollouts internationally, the newest update finally started rolling out just last week in some markets. Like today, it’s making it’s way acrossthe pond to the United States, specifically to units sold by Verizon and Comcast Xtrinity Mobile. We assume that the other carriers will be receiving this update in due course.
This new build number is G99xUSQU4AUF5 and, aside from the aformentioned camera lag fixes, it should also optimize Portrait mode and additionally give you the option to scan QR codes from the built in gallery app, as well as provide improved video call effects. And finally, overheating should be a thing of the past, if Samsung is to be believed, so in all of this, seems to be a pretty important update, which you should install as soon as it is available to your device.
Speaking of this, this rolloout is certainly phased (I’d say), so it might take a few days (or even a few weeks), before every single unit in the wild receives the notification. If you are impatient, go to Settings > Software Update and hit the Download and install while keeping your fingers crossed, maybe you will get lucky and jump over the line.
