The Galaxy S21 is the latest premium flagship phone from Samsung. The series actually comes in three variants: the regular Galaxy S21, the Galaxy S21 +, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Most of the industry is focused on the Ultra as it is the ultimate S Pen compatible model. But then there are two other variants ready for those who don’t know what to bother with a stylus. We have yet to do a thorough review and analysis, so we will decide what others are saying about the phones.
Last week, we brought you up on the Galaxy S21 battery issues that appeared after the February security update. Samsung is aware of the problems and is now working on solutions. We mentioned that the March 2021 update could bring a fix, but it looks like a second February update is ready.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 battery drain issue may be fixed soon. Some Galaxy S21 series phones are getting an update, specifically, G99xBXXU1AUB6. This build also offers a February 2021 security patch. There is a changelog, but it doesn’t describe everything.

The next update brings changes and improvements to security, camera, and overall performance. The battery discharge problem is provided it will be fixed as some who have already applied the update are sharing the good news.
Note that the battery drain problem was reported by those Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus running on Exynos. The Snapdragon variants did not appear to be affected. Some have reported that the problem was also related to cellular connectivity. Interestingly, the Exynos Galaxy S21 Ultra was not affected.
The update is now available in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom. More key markets are expected to receive the same.
