Samsung Galaxy S21 FE One UI 6.1 India

Samsung’s Galaxy S21 FE now supports the Camera Assistant app. The company has silently brought this upgrade to one of its popular Fan Edition smartphones. However, some Camera Assistant features available in flagship phones don’t arrive on the S21 FE.

Folks over at SamMobile highlight that Camera Assistant support for Galaxy S21 FE went live in January this year. It’s worth noting that the Camera Assistant app received its last update in January, which probably made the S21 FE-supported model.

Camera Assistant is a free-to-download app available on the Galaxy Store. Support for S21 FE was initially planned to arrive with a One UI 6.0 upgrade. The company has also fulfilled its promise, while this significant development didn’t fall under our radar.

Once downloaded, you will be able to make changes to the stock camera application. Camera Assistant allows you to bring a 2x zoom button to the camera viewfinder, picture softening, burst shot when using the timer, distortion correction, and disable long press video recording.

Samsung Care+ Saudi Arabia

Samsung Care+ is a stunning service that users can combine with the device while purchasing. In a recent development, Samsung announced Galaxy users will now be able to raise two claims per year.

The Samsung Care+ program now covers two claims per year in India. The new policy applies to all kinds of Care+ plans that include Accidental and Liquid Damage Protection and Screen Protection only. Previously, it covered two claims within two years.

It’s a pretty significant decision the company has taken given consumer satisfaction. We’ve observed cases of consumer dissatisfaction with authorized Samsung centers and staff assigned there. They either lack idea about the latest flagship products or delay unusually.

The company offers the Care+ subscription for free with flagship devices in select countries. Paying a one-time fee, you can raise a claim at authorized Samsung service centers.

It ensures your Galaxy device is repaired through an official channel at a minimal cost. Samsung’s Care+ program is available for smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other devices.
