Samsung debuted One UI 4.1 with the Galaxy S22 series a few weeks ago. Yesterday, the company announced that One UI 4.1 will be released soon to other smartphones. Right after the announcement, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 started getting the update. Now, One UI 4.1 is rolling out the Galaxy S21 series.
The South Korean firm has released the Android 12-based One UI 4.1 update to the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra in Canada. The new update comes with firmware version G99xWVLU5CVBA and is available on Rogers and Sasktel networks. The new software also brings the March 2022 security patch that promises to fix over 50 security vulnerabilities.
If you are a Galaxy S21 series smartphone user in Canada, you can download the One UI 4.1 update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually, but that will erase your personal data, so make sure to back it up.
Galaxy S21 One UI 4.1 features
The One UI 4.1 update brings Google Duo Live Sharing to Galaxy smartphones. The feature allows users to share their smartphone’s screen with others during a Google Duo video call. Users can watch movies and videos together, listen to music, collaborate on documents, plan a trip on Google Maps, and much more. The new feature is inspired by Apple’s SharePlay feature.
The new version of One UI also brings better image editing features, including Reflection Eraser and Shadow Eraser. While sharing images, One UI 4.1 automatically notifies users when something needs to be cropped out of the image or if it needs tilting. The new update also allows users to share multiple images, videos, and other files simultaneously via Quick Share.
Samsung has also implemented Grammarly into Samsung Keyboard. Starting One UI 4.1, users can write more fluently using Samsung Keyboard as it can now offer corrections for grammar and typos. It can also suggest changes to sentence formation for better language.
