Over the last few years, Samsung has stepped up its game when it comes to software update rollout.
Building on its earlier announcement to offer three major Android OS updates for select devices, Samsung on Monday announced that it will offer minimum 4 years of security updates for most Galaxy products launched since 2019. The South Korean giant has come up with a list of eligible phones and tablets that includes both budget offerings from its entry-level Galaxy M series to its high-end foldables. Put together, the list covers over 130 models.
Over the last few years, Samsung has stepped up its game when it comes to software update rollout for its phones and tablets. Remember, this is the same company that was once infamous for update delays, even in the case of its flagship phones and tablets. Things are improving, though, Samsung remains to be one of the few big tech companies out there that fails to be part of Google’s Android early Beta software rollout to this day. Hopefully, Android 12 would change that too – fingers crossed.

Like Google, Samsung already offers three major Android updates for select devices. Apple meanwhile, remains the king of the hill when it comes to OS updates, with an iPhone as old as the iPhone 6S (which was launched in 2015) also eligible to run the latest iOS 14 update.
