The Samsung Galaxy M51 and Galaxy M31s are reportedly receiving the Android security patch from May 2021. Not much is known about the update for the Galaxy M31s, but the Galaxy M51 will get the Quick Share feature with the update. The updates for the Galaxy smartphones will be rolled out in Brazil and Russia. Samsung launched the Galaxy M51 in September 2020 and the Galaxy M31s in July 2020. Both Galaxy smartphones were launched out-of-the-box with Android 10 and updated to Android 11 later that year.
The updates for Samsung Galaxy M51 and Galaxy M31 were first reported by SamMobile. Samsung is reportedly launching Quick Share for the Galaxy M51 in Brazil. While the feature wasn’t available in Brazil, the company now appears to have made the feature the standard for its devices with One UI 2.1 or higher. It could also be that the update improves Quick Share in regions where it was already available.
The Galaxy M51 also gets support for Google RCS and improvements to the overall stability of the functions. Samsung has also complied with the new personal data protection laws introduced by the Brazilian government in 2020. It bears the title Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD) and is touted as the Brazilian counterpart to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The LGPD “seeks to standardize the more than 40 different laws that currently regulate personal data both online and offline by replacing certain regulations and supplementing others.”
There is no changelog available for the Galaxy M31. There is also no information about the firmware version or the size of the update. To manually search for the update on your authorized handset, go to Settings> Software Update> Download and Install.
