    This latest update is the 7th for the Global, Exynos, S21 series and is currently being rolled out by Samsung.

    It would appear that this is a bugfix and March security patch.

    Initially, as always, this is rolling out to the non-carrier branded, stock Samsung CSC codes first.

    The Galaxy S21 Global, Exynos, devices that will receive this update are...
    • S21 5G model SM-G991B
    • S21+ 5G model SM-G996B
    • S21 Ultra 5G model SM-G998B
    This latest release replaces the G99*BXXU1AUB8/9 February builds.

    It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you.

    Unfortunately, no, as you have the Snapdragon country minority variant for the U.S.A. and even though it is unlocked, the firmware for your carrier has to still be approved by them before release.
     
  5. Thanks, I don't quite understand that. I bought an unlocked phone and chose my carrier from a variety of carriers. I chose mint mobile. They have no software on my phone whatsoever. Here's the complete list of packages on my phone: https://virtualcoinclub.com/android/pkgs.txt

    What is your devices CSC, (“Consumer Software Customization” or “Country Specific Code“), code.

    To locate this, go to...

    Settings > About phone > Software information > Service provider software version.. there is a 3 letter CSC code as shown in the following screenshot...

    The latest firmware showing from Samsung for your Galaxy S21 5G country minority variant on CSC code XAA, (XAA – USA unbranded/unlocked/default), is still the January build, ending in AUAG which has the Android Security patch for February.

    Now that locked Verizon, (VZW), has started to roll-out the February, AUB5, build with the March Android Security patch it should only be a matter of days before you see an update.
     
  9. Thanks for the info. I am hoping for a little more consistent batttery performance. Sometimes it uses a lot while I am doing nothng and have most apps set to "deep sleep". Phone works fine otherwise.
