A few years back, Samsung was known for a poor update track record when compared to other Android OEMs. But thankfully, that’s not the case anymore. The company has not only promised three generations of Android updates to its flagships and mid-rangers but also at least four years of security updates for almost its entire lineup. Apart from longer support, it is now also faster in rolling out the builds. How fast you may ask? The answer is the firm has already started seeding the March 2021 security update to some of its devices when February is yet to end.
According to SamMobile, the South Korean tech giant has started rolling out the March 2021 security update to a total of four devices. These phones are Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy S21 series (Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra).
For the Galaxy A8 (2018), the latest security update for this handset is currently live in the UAE with firmware version A530FXXSICUC1. Whereas, the same update for the Galaxy S21 series is being seeded in Taiwan with firmware version G99x0ZHU1AUB7 weighing 387MB.
Users of these four handsets in the above-mentioned regions can head over to Settings > Software update > Download and install to check whether their phone has received the OTA release.
Anyway, it is worth noting that though the March 2021 update is live for the mentioned handsets in the respective regions, it may take time to reach every unit as it is being pushed in batches. Similarly, customers in other markets should also get this update in the coming days.
