G990B/DS is Snapdragon processor, Dual sim, Europe/International version, not USA.
Samsung S21fe USA versions have the model code G990U.

To find out the which country's software version you have, go to settings> about phone> Software information> Service provider software version. There you can find a 3digit code on the 2nd line, that's the CSC (Country Specific Code) of your phone.

Since your model is G990B, only four country's are yet to have android 13 update till date: SEK (Ukrain), SER (Russia), SKZ (Kazakhstan) & CAU (Georgia). You must have one of these region's phone.

I have G990B from France and I received A13 update 1 week ago approximatively.

Ah so lucky! still on Oct security and no 13 here in Australia yet...Any improvement in camera quality?
I haven't noticed any improvement but I have to say I haven't tested it so much.
I feel my phone more responsive, battery life is (very) slightly better, I think that's all.
To me, not THE century update, but since Android 7-8 we got a well rounded OS harder to significantly improve.

Thank you very much for the update!

No camera improvements. Shutter lag is still there, over-sharpening is still there, no telephoto RAW support, no expert raw support.
Thanks for the update. It is dissapointing to see they have not focussed on addressing issues and making the photograpy aspect a priorty for FE users...Let's hope we can get further camera updates that will improve this for us!
