Samsung has reportedly started rolling out the June 2021 Android security patch to Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Galaxy S21 series. The update is already out even before the month has begun. Samsung has been quite busy rolling out updates to its family of phones, and very early too.

Samsung is rolling out the June 2021 Android security patch to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G in Europe, according to a report by SamMobile. This includes Austria, the Baltic region, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, the Nordic countries, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the UK. The security patch is available with the firmware version F707BXXS3DUE1.

As for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung is rolling out the update only in South Korea. The firmware versions are G991NKSU3AUE8, G996NKSU3AUE8, and G998NKSU3AUE8 for each of the Galaxy S21 phones. Samsung hasn't released the changelog of the update though so it's not known yet what vulnerabilities Samsung has fixed, the report added. We also don't know details on the size of the updates. Samsung is expected to publish the information soon.

The update rollout is happening over-the-air-, and a notification for the same should arrive on your phones. You can also manually download the update by going to Settings > Software update > Download and install. Based on the reports so far, the update is limited to Europe and South Korea but it should arrive in more markets soon. It's also worth noting that the security patch has been rolled out to Samsung phones before the Google Pixel phones.
