    This latest update is the 14th for the Global, Exynos, S21 series and is currently being rolled out by Samsung and is a later, July, build than the current U.S. Snapdragon update AUFD which has a June build date.

    This update is for camera, general bugfixes and July security patch.

    • S21 Ultra 5G model SM-G998B
    This latest release replaces the previous G99*BXXU3AUF6 build.

    It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you. Alternatively, you can connect to the Samsung PC suite, Smart Switch and check via that.

    Changelog

      • Performance of camera has been improved
      • The security of your device has been improved

    I work from home and live in the sticks, so no 5G yet. However, there has definitely been an improvement in my EE network signal strength, (-dBm & ASU), with this updated, AUG4, Baseband.

    (Lower -dBm & higher ASU is better)

    Once again it is the EE firmware for the U.K. on CSC code EVR that is released for U.K. carrier branded phones first.

    It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you. Alternatively, you can connect to the Samsung PC suite, Smart Switch and check via that.
