Samsung S21 October 2022 update

Samsung just served the October 2022 software update to the Galaxy S21 series smartphones in Germany. In addition to the October 2022 security update, the changelog mentions that the Galaxy S21 users won’t be able to rollback to an earlier version after installing the OTA.

The Galaxy S21 series users might be assuming it as a normal change, but, Samsung may have included some important code changes to prevent rollback on the devices before delivering the Android 13-based One UI 5.0. The company has already released the October patch for the S21 lineup in India and the United States.

The South Korean tech giant is expected to share the details of its October 2022 security patch anytime, while the update rollout is already happening from September 26 – starting with Galaxy A52. As the new OTA is adding rollback restrictions, we can assume it as a notable move towards One UI 5.0 distribution.
