Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is already receiving the November security update
For a while now, Samsung's been doing this thing where it sometimes releases a security patch before even Google gets round to it. It's usually at the very end of a month when a specific Samsung device might get next month's security update, but the distance keeps growing.
Case in point: a few hours ago, when it was still October 25, the company has started rolling out the November security patch to Galaxy S21 Ultra units purchased in Germany. This is a new record, releasing such an update six days before the actual "security patch level" you'll have once you apply it - that will be November 1, 2021. Welcome to the future, then, S21 Ultra owners!
As we said, it's only going out in Germany so far, but expect the rollout to be quickly extended to more countries and regions in the next few days. The changelog is very vague and only mentions general security improvements and bug fixes.
It's a 222MB download, and once you've installed it you'll be on software version G998BXXS3AUJ7.
I have not been receiving updates. And my last security patch update shows June.
