Talking about Samsung’s new One UI 4.0 version has been quite common over the past couple of months, especially after the tech giant open registrations for the beta in mid-September. We even know now when the stable version of One UI 4.0 begins to be deployed.
Meanwhile, however, some of the more economical products Samsung phones are still waiting for the One UI 3.1 and Android 11 update.
Well, one of those phones’s turn has finally come, and Galaxy A21 owners in the US can now enjoy all the benefits of the new versions of Android and One UI. The firmware version is codenamed A215USQU5BUI4, and there is also a new security patch next to it.
What does the Galaxy A21 get with the new update?
The most obvious improvements and changes you’ll see are in the user interface. Among the most notable are improved settings and quick notifications sections and better accessibility. While most people have probably switched them to better alternatives, some Samsung apps like Calendar, Samsung Keyboard, Gallery, and Samsung Internet are also getting an update in their design and usability.
One of the most interesting new features of One UI 3.1 is probably the ability to choose between discovering Samsung Free or Google on the leftmost screen of your home interface. Another significant improvement is the new camera app features like Director’s View, Vlogger’s View, Single Take 2.0, and Focus Enhancement.
All this to say that despite being quite late, the update to One UI 3.1 and Android 11 for the Galaxy A21 brings a noticeable update that will surely give the impression of being a newer device. The update is rolling out, so keep your eyes peeled for this update notification.
As for any other update, the Galaxy A21 will likely also receive Android 12 and One UI 4.0, but don’t expect that to happen anytime soon. Presumably it will take about a year or more for this to happen.
