    Samsung has begun rolling out the CVDD update with the May security and bugfix and enhancements release for the S21 series of international devices.


    Initially, as always, this is a staged rollout to the non-carrier branded, stock Samsung CSC codes first.


    The Galaxy S21 international 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 previous G99*BXXS4CVD2 build on the international devices.


    Changelog

    • Overall stability of your device has been improved
    • The security of your device has been improved
    • Camera
    • The Night Portrait feature has been enhanced
    • The quality of pictures taken with social or camera apps downloaded from the application store has been improved
    • The 'Auto framing' feature is supported in video mode and some video call apps
    • After updating you will not be able to downgrade to the old software because of updates to the security policy

    It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you. Alternatively, you can connect to the Samsung PC suite, Smart Switch and check via that.


    System information




    The update = G99*BXXU5CVDD


    Download = 869MB


    Build date = 25 April 2022


    Release date = 02 May 2022


    Camera version = 12.0.01.69

    This is the 31st stable update for the Exynos model in 458 days. Average = 1 update every 15 days.


    TOP TIP: Wipe the phone's cache partition and use the Galaxy App Booster after updating.
