If you're rocking a Galaxy S21, S21+, or S21 Ultra, and you want to check out the latest software goodies that Samsung is brewing up, you'll want to get involved with the One UI beta program.

Samsung updates the Galaxy S21 with features from One UI 3.1.1

Samsung updates the Galaxy S21 with features from One UI 3.1.1

When Samsung unveiled the Fold3 and Flip3 earlier this month, it did something a little different with their software. Because One UI 4 is right around the corner, Samsung scrapped the 3.5 update and released the new foldables with an incremental 3.1.1 version instead. Because most of the new features are specifically for foldables, many wondered if existing phones would get the update or skip straight to One UI 4.0. Now we have our answer, as the Galaxy S21 series is being updated with some improvements from 3.1.1, even without formally graduating to 3.1.1.

Samsung's July 2021 update is coming to the Galaxy S20 on Verizon

By this point, we know pretty well what to expect from Samsung when it comes to monthly security updates. Usually some international market will get the next month's release a little early, still in the waning days of the previous month — exactly like we just saw happen for the July release right at the end of June. And then if we're very good and patient, a few days later we start seeing the first releases start to appear for US carriers — just like what's happening right now.

Samsung jumps the gun with One UI 4.0 announcement, beta lands in September

Samsung has steadily been improving its software update speed over the last few years. Security patches are already impeccable, but major Android updates are still two or three months behind Google. In June, there was a rumor that Samsung would be releasing One UI 4 based on Android 12 earlier than in recent years. That seems to be the case, as one of the community managers accidentally announced the beta early before swiftly deleting the post.
