Samsung's June 2021 security update starts hitting the Galaxy S21

The Galaxy S21 series phones are the first to get the June 2021 security patch.

What you need to know

  • The June 2021 Android security patch has started rolling out to Samsung's Galaxy S21 series phones.
  • The rollout is currently limited to South Korea.
  • Samsung is expected to release the June security update for more Galaxy phones over the coming days.

Samsung's Galaxy S21 series have started receiving a new software update that brings the June 2021 Android security patch. According to SammyFans, the June 2021 security update arrives as version G991NKSU3AUE8, G996NKSU3AUE8, and G998NKSU3AUE8 for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra, respectively.

The new security update appears to be limited to users in South Korea right now, but it will expand to more markets over the coming days. Since we're still in May, Google hasn't yet detailed the changes included with the June 2021 security patch. More details are expected to arrive in the first week of June, which is when Google's Pixel phones are likely to start receiving the patch.

Unsurprisingly, the latest update for the Galaxy S21 series doesn't bring any new features or improvements. The next big update for the flagship trio is expected to be Android 12-based One UI 4.0, which could begin rolling out sometime in the fourth quarter of the year. Samsung will also launch a One UI 4.0 beta program for its flagship phones in a few weeks, but no details have been confirmed yet.

Unlike most other Android OEMs, Samsung doesn't restrict monthly security updates to its best Android phones. Its best cheap Android phones will also start receiving the June 2021 Android security patch very soon.

How to watch England vs India: Live stream Fourth Test cricket online

Having bounced back from defeat with an impressive win in the third Test at Headingley, Joe Root's men will be hoping they can now forge an advantage as the series moves to London - watch every ball of this fourth Test with our England vs India live stream guide below. England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score.
