The July 2022 Android security patch has begun rolling out to Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series devices. It receives the most recent security update alongside the Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy A32, and Galaxy A23. In the following days, additional eligible Galaxy smartphones and tablets will also join the party.
In a few European nations, including Germany and the UK, the July SMR (Security Maintenance Release) for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21, and Galaxy S21 Ultra is rolling out . G99*BXXS5CVFB is the new firmware version for phones in these areas. Other markets, such as the US, ought to shortly receive the update.
There won’t likely be any significant changes that the Galaxy S21 series’ users will notice after this update. The most recent security updates seem to be the main focus. Unfortunately, neither of those details are available to us. Although there are dozens of vulnerabilities that need to be fixed, we are unable to establish their seriousness. In the upcoming days, Samsung will probably update its security bulletin to include the July SMR. The latest security patch has only recently started to be distributed to its devices, after all.

The OTA (over the air) deployment may take several days to reach all eligible units in a region because these updates are distributed in batches. Once the update is accessible, your phone will let you know. To get the update quickly, tap the notice. By going to Settings > Software update and selecting “Download and install,” you can also manually check for updates. Users of the Galaxy S21 in the US and other countries should keep an eye out for this update in the upcoming days.
THE JULY SECURITY UPDATE WILL SOON BE APPLIED TO OTHER GALAXY DEVICES. Over the weekend, Samsung started distributing the July security patch to its products. The update has already been made available for a few different smartphone models. A dozen or two Galaxy devices and tablets could receive the July SMR soon, given the company’s recent track record with these updates.
Naturally, not all Samsung devices will get the latest security update. While most flagship models will receive it, fewer mid-range and inexpensive vehicles will receive the SMR. Depending on the model and age, Samsung distributes security updates to its budget-friendly devices either monthly, quarterly, or biannually. As the firm expands the July SMR to more devices, we’ll keep you updated.
