One of the most popular Samsung phones of recent years has received an update to Android 14 and One UI 6. We are talking about the Galaxy S21 series, which has 3 devices that sell millions in many markets. They are standout phones in the company’s catalog because many users still use them perfectly normally and with very good performance. As of today, they have a good excuse to extend the life: they are updating to Android 14.
If you have a Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 Plus or Galaxy S21 Ultra, you can enjoy one of the best possible news: Android 14 and One UI 6 update is underway. Samsung has already released the OTA with build number G99xBXXU9FWK2 for all models in the series.
This means that today you can upgrade any of the three smartphones we mentioned earlier. If the update notification doesn’t come automatically, you can try some tricks. Just go to settings and find “Check for updates”. With this simple step you will force your device to search for OTA and you can download it instantly.
This update will install Android 14 and One UI 6 on your mobile without touching any data. You don’t have to worry about making backups because the update doesn’t delete anything. You just need to keep in mind that the battery must be almost fully charged to start the installation.
The good news is that these devices not only come with Android 14, they can be upgraded to Android 15 within a year. They launched with Android 11 and Samsung promised to give them 4 years of updates, so their support (eg Android updates) will end next year after they get… Android 15, probably around the same time.
List of other phones that received Android 14 last week:
