Samsung rolls out a new One UI 2.1 update to the Galaxy M21 and M31 with new camera features
Over the last few weeks, Samsung has rolled out the One UI 2.5 update for several of its older flagship models. But while the company’s older flagships are getting the latest version of One UI based on Android 10, most of its budget and mid-range devices are stuck on older versions of the software. The Galaxy M21 and Galaxy M31 (review), for instance, are still running One UI 2.0, over six months after the devices were launched. Thankfully, the company is finally getting around to releasing software updates for both the devices that bring a host of new camera features for users.
According to a recent report from TizenHelp, Samsung has now started rolling out One UI 2.1 for the Galaxy M21 (firmware version M215FXXU2ATI9) and Galaxy M31 (firmware version M315FXXU2ATIB). The update measures in at 1292MB for the Galaxy M21 and 489MB for the Galaxy M31, and it includes several new camera features, system stability improvements, and security improvements for the devices.
As you can see in the attached screenshot, the update brings camera features like My filters, Single take, and Night hyperlapse to the devices. In case you aren’t familiar with these features, My filters lets you create custom filters, Single Take lets you capture a series of images, videos and GIFs with a single 15s take, and Night Hyperlapse allows you to shoot low light hyperlapse videos.
Along with these new camera features, the update brings Android security patches for September 2020 to the devices, system stability improvements, security enhancements, and bug fixes. The One UI 2.1 update has reportedly started rolling out to Galaxy M21 and Galaxy M31 users in India, and you should receive it on your device in the coming days. In case you haven’t received the update notification, you can manually check for updates by heading to the Software Updates section in the device settings.
