I would like to inquire about the update policy for the S21 FE Snapdragon 888. Given that the out-of-the-box Android version was 13, can I expect updates until Android 16 or 17? Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yeah that's why probably only SD 888 variant which was launched in 2023 will get Android 16 not for Exynos Variant.

Officially it's Android 15. Will have to wait and see if they will provide A16 or not.

As per Samsung site, it's A15. They officially didn't mention that it will support A16.

One of the reasons being it was launched in Korea with A11.

I have seen in lot of platforms that it's till A16 but at the end of the day Samsung is gonna provide it not these platform.

Well they are not official sites. They are third party who gives information. And SamMobile has a good reputation among them. The site which I mentioned is officially handled by Samsung. So as of now it's A15.

And yes, A16 may come when these unofficial sites and other members raise the issue at a global platform which may lead to legal issues then you can get A16.

It will be publicized issue during 2025-26. So we have to wait and see.
