Samsung Galaxy m21 review

As shown in the change long above, the update focuses majorly Camera, Keyboard, Messages and security improvements. Recall that the Galaxy M21 was announced back in March this year, and came in a 6.4-inches Full-HD+ screen with Android 10 out of the box.

According to this page, the update started sending just yesterday, and it might take up to 7-days before you get notified on your M21, since it is OTA. This however is location dependent, and you can check if the update is already on your device by heading over to device update section in your phone setting.
