Samsung has recently begun rolling out its latest One UI 6.1 x Android 14 update, now available for the Snapdragon 888 version of the Galaxy S21 FE. This rollout follows the initial launch of the original Galaxy S21 FE in January 2022 and its subsequent refresh with the Snapdragon 888 processor in July 2023.
The Galaxy S21 FE users can identify this significant update by the firmware version G990B2XXU5FWK3/G990B2ODM5FWK3/G990B2XXU5FWK3. It's important to note that the update is quite large, requiring a 2GB download.
With this update, Samsung elevates the device's capabilities significantly. The operating system upgrade to Android 14 brings with it the Android security patch for November 2023, enhancing the device's security features. Even though the official changelog from Samsung has not been released, users can anticipate a range of new features and improvements.
The One UI 6.0 update includes several notable enhancements:
A fresh emoji design adds a touch of novelty.
Enhanced sharing capabilities, with picture and video previews now visible in the Share panel.
Improved multitasking with a pop-up window that remains accessible after leaving the Recents screen.
Customization options for the lock screen clock, allowing users to freely position it.
A more streamlined home screen experience with simplified app icon labels.
The Weather widget and app have been revamped to include more detailed information, an interactive map view, and enhanced Weather illustrations, providing a more comprehensive user experience.
This update represents a substantial improvement in both functionality and user experience for Galaxy S21 FE users.
