Breaking: Samsung releases April 2021 security update for Galaxy S21 users with major camera improvements

Fulfilling its promise and following its tradition, Samsung started releasing the April 2021 Android and One UI security patch for the Galaxy S21 series smartphones in India. Sending new security patches before completing the current month is not surprising news for Samsung fans.

As we have previously reported that the Galaxy S21 phones will soon get the April security update with major bug fixes, the changelog confirms our reporting. However, it is a big size update of more than 1GB, which brings new camera performance improvements to enhance the picture-taking capabilities of the camera-focused S21 handsets.

According to some reports, this new software update again allows the Samsung Galaxy S21 users to use the regular camera to capture portraits. It is worth noting, the company had previously restricted the Portrait mode on its premium devices to use the ultrawide or telephoto camera.

Besides, the OEM is on the mission to deliver the new and smart camera features of the Galaxy S21 lineup to its older flagships such as the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20. Following this, the previous reports say that T-Mobile has updated its support page for the S20 phones and added the Director’s View camera feature tutorial even it’s not yet available for them.

Aside from this, the Galaxy S21 flagships became the first to get the February 2021 security update back in January 2021. With these aggressive software updates, Samsung is dazzling the owners of its latest premium smartphone range. And below, you can check the software versions of the latest software update for Samsung Galaxy S21 flagships:
