Samsung Galaxy S21 FE received an Android 13 update two months ago for the first time. However, the update was available on the global version only. But today, the update is finally released for the US carrier-unlocked version of the smartphone.
The Android 13-based One UI 5.0 update released the Galaxy S21 FE’s USA carrier-unlocked model with firmware version G990U1UEU4DVLC. The update brings December 2022 security patch rather than the January 2023 security update. Now, the update is available on all US carrier networks.
The US carrier-locked version of the Galaxy S21 FE received the Android 13 update with firmware version G990USQU4DVK5/G990USQS4DVL1/G990USQU4DVLC a couple of weeks ago.
If you’re a Galaxy S21 FE user in the US, you might receive the update notification, or you can check the update manually through Settings » Software update and clicking on Download and install.
