A few hours ago, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE started receiving its own update to One UI 5 based on Android 13, and here we are less than a day later, and its successor also came into action.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is now also blessed with the latest iteration of the Korean company’s software skin, which is built on top of Google’s latest Android release. The update is currently available in select markets for the international model, the model self-identified as SM-G990B.
The new build being rolled out is labeled G990BXXU2DVK3, will arrive over-the-air as a 2.3GB download, and will bring with it the October 1, 2022 security patch level. That’s nowhere near current, and we fully expect Samsung to correct it in early December, when it should roll out the December security update for the S21 FE.
Until then, if you own one of these (with the above model number), it may pay to manually check for an update by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. You could get lucky and get a taste of One UI 5 by the end of the day. If the update isn’t available to you yet, don’t worry – it’s definitely on its way now and may take a few days to reach all units in the wild.
