Samsung has been up and running lately and delivered critical security updates consistently month after month. We have carefully tracked the company’s results in this area, and it has not disappointed. With April already here, this month’s Android security updates reach Samsung phones in the US, starting with the carrier Galaxy S21 series and the unlocked Note20 Ultra.

If you own one of these phones, you should expect the update to arrive in your device in the next few days. In the meantime, others may have to wait a little longer, but given Samsung’s recent record, more Galaxy phones should jump on the bandwagon in a short time. You also have the option to check for this April update manually by going to Settings> Software update.

The list below includes all Samsung phones that have received the April 2021 security update in the United States. We have marked the latest entries in bold for easier visibility.
