S20FE in restart loop after Android 11 update

I'm using S20FE T-Mobile unlocked version.

After installing the Android 11 update, the phone turned on and showed a notification "Finishing System Updates". And then it restarted again.

It's been in the restart loop since then, every time it turns on, shows the same notification and restarts again.

Tried wiping Cache partition, Booting in Safe Mode, nothing worked.

Unfortunately, I don't have a backup of my data so want to avoid doing Factory Reset.

Please help!

Try a soft reboot,.,hold Bixby volume down at the same time for 8 seconds.

I had a problem similar to this on my Note 20 Ultra and I unfortunately had to do a hard reset. It sounds like you've exhausted all of your options

This is scary.
There's just too much data which I'll lose if I do a factory reset. 

I had everything backed up but even that hard drive crashed few days back.

I feel that. I would contact Samsung Support by phone to see what they suggest, they have something you didn't think of
