Samsung Galaxy S21 gets the October 2022 security update in the US

Samsung released the October 2022 security update for the Galaxy S22 series in the US earlier today. That’s quite strange, since the American models are usually the last to receive new updates. The South Korean company has now released a new security update for the Galaxy S21 series in the US.

Galaxy S21 October 2022 security update now available in the US

The carrier-locked versions of the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra will receive a new software update with firmware version G996USQS5CVI8. The update brings the October 2022 security patch that fixes multiple security vulnerabilities. The new software is currently available on Xfinity Mobile’s network in the US. Samsung could soon release the new update to other carriers and countries.

You can now check for the new security update if you have a carrier-locked version of a Galaxy S21 series phone in the US. You can do that by going to Settings ยป Software Update and tapping Download and Install. You can also download the new firmware file from our database and then manually flash it. However, be sure to back up your personal data before flashing the new firmware.

The Galaxy S21 series debuted early last year with the Android 11-based One UI 3 on board. The three smartphones in the series received the Android 12-based One UI 4 update at the end of last year. Samsung is already testing the Android 13-based One UI 5.0 software on these devices, and a stable version may be released before the end of this year.
