Samsung Galaxy S21 Series October Update Brings Digital Car Key Support to Phones in South Korea

The Samsung Galaxy S21, the brand’s latest flagship device, is reportedly getting new updates that, apart from a few bug fixes, will also bring Digital Car Key Support to the smartphone. 

What is the Digital Key Support update?

As the name suggests, the Digital Key Support updates enable users in South Korea to open their cars using their smartphone. Of course, this feature does not work with every single car out there - it is available for select cars by Audi, BMW, Genesis, and Ford.

Once the update is rolled out, users can register their cars on Samsung Pass and use biometric identification to gain access to their car. The NFC feature built into the  Samsung Galaxy S21 is what will help users unlock or lock their cars. When the smartphone is placed on the car’s wireless charger, it will also enable the car to start. 

Other Samsung Galaxy S21 updates to expect in October

Samsung is rolling out a few updates for the Samsung Galaxy S21,  Samsung Galaxy S21+ and  Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra devices. The update includes the October Android security patch, and will be available for India, Germany, and the Philippines.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series, including the Samsung Galaxy S21+ and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, have been launched in India. As of now, there are no reports indicating whether the Digital car key support feature will be rolled out to other countries. South Korea is probably a test market for Samsung, and if all goes well, the brand may decide to roll the update out to users in other countries too.
