Samsung has just launched the May 2021 update rollout on the Galaxy S21, S21, and S21 Ultra in Europe. As SamMobile report, the firmware arrives only three weeks after the April 2021 patch arrives. The South Korean giant is very responsive.
As always, the OTA update will first be available in a handful of markets. In the second phase, Samsung will roll out the update on a larger scale. This prevents the brand from spreading any bugs or failures. In detail, the patch weighs 1.2GB.

Quick Share detects all nearby contacts and lets you share content (files, photos, or videos) with five friends at the same time. According to Samsung, the firmware may improve file transfer.
