The Galaxy S21 series will begin receiving Android 13 One UI 5.0 from Samsung.

Samsung released the One UI 5.0 upgrade for the Galaxy S22 series last month, based on Android 13. In the coming months, it also vowed to make the most recent One UI version available for older phones. The South Korean tech giant has begun deploying One UI 5.0 to the Galaxy S21 series, including the S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra, as promised.

In various European nations, including the UK and Germany, the S21 series is now receiving the One UI 5.0 update. It has a firmware version number of G99xBXXU5DVJC and, unsurprisingly, includes a lot of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes.

One UI 5.0 offers several customization choices, a new home screen widget experience, multitasking enhancements, camera enhancements, including the ability to zoom in and out with only one hand, and other features. Improvements to Samsung DeX, better privacy and security features, and more are included.

While all of these updates will be accessible to S21 handsets worldwide, customers will need to wait a few more days until they receive them. To make sure that every S21 customer gets the most out of what’s new in One UI 5.0, Samsung is anticipated to push it out more broadly in the upcoming days. The most recent One UI version will eventually roll out to further Galaxy handsets after the Galaxy S21 series. Find out more about the release date for your Galaxy smartphone here.

If the update is accessible for your S21, you ought to receive a notification. However, you can download the new update if you wish to manually check it by going to Settings > Software update and selecting Download and install. Remember that just a few European nations are now eligible.
