    It looks as though Samsung has pulled the previous AUDA update for reasons known only to themselves at the moment. After a hesitant roll-out to 7 countries it has been dropped for this new release. A pity really as I found the AUDA firmware to be pretty good. The changelist for AUDA and the new AUE1 are identical, 21556388.

    This latest update is the 10th for the Global, Exynos, S21 series and is currently being rolled out by Samsung.

    This big 1.1GB update is for camera, general bugfixes and May security patch.

    Initially, as always, this is rolling out to the non-carrier branded, stock Samsung CSC codes first.

    The Galaxy S21 Global, Exynos, devices that will receive this update are...

    • S21 5G model SM-G991B
    • S21+ 5G model SM-G996B
    • S21 Ultra 5G model SM-G998B

    This latest release replaces the G99*BXXU2AUC8/G99*BXXU3AUDA March/April builds.

    It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you.

    Changelog

    • Performance of camera has been improved
    • Enhanced QuickShare
    • The security of your device has been improved
    • After updating, you will not be able to downgrade to the old software because of updates to the security policy

    The update = G99*BXXU3AUE1

    Download = 1149.41 MB

    Build date = 01 May 2021

    Release date = 06 May 2021

    Camera version = 11.0.02.96

    One UI version = 3.1

    Android Security patch = May 2021

    This is the 10th stable update in 98 days. Average = 1 update every 10 days.

    (N.B. This post will be updated as more information becomes available)

    Information about the latest firmware can always be found at https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ for locked or unlocked phones, and at the carrier's website for locked phones.

    Hopefully, Verizon will issue a few more updates for their carrier locked S21 series than they have for their S20 series... just 5 updates in 14 months according to SamMobile...

    https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/ga.../VZW/#SM-G988U

    So far, since launch, there has only been just 1 firmware release, AUB5, for the locked Verizon S21, G99*U, series on a February build with the March Android security patch...

    https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/ga...2AUB5/1496295/

    The unlocked S21 series, G99*U1, has only received 2 updates in 15 weeks since launch.

    No, that's inaccurate. SamMobile only seems to list recent updates. For a complete historical record, see instead
    https://doc.samsungmobile.com/SM-G998U1/XAA/doc.html. The G998U1 has received 4 updates so far, with a 5th presumably imminent, less than 4 months after the phone's release.

    That's better for the unlocked USA S21 series Verizon firmware, 4 updates for it.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    No one knows, Samsung isn't known to push updates in determined frequency. They are all over the place based on region, carrier etc. Sometimes early in the month, sometimes later. They aren't like Apple and Google.

    We will get every month update at least that's great compared to lot of other Android OEMs. But just can't exactly tell when during the month they'll push the update.

    I was on the May Android Security update 26th April, before Pixel I believe, on the AUDA release and now with the AUE1 update.

    Meh Pixel is consistent with first Monday of every month unlike Samsung who releases in some region and have bragging rights. No points for Samsung from me

    Rather follow the Pixel/Apple model than the disjointed Samsung firmware variations and releases.
