Samsung Software Support End For Several Galaxy Smartphones

Published

on


Samsung has built a reputation for its remarkable progress and groundbreaking ideas. Nonetheless, it’s not uncommon for older devices to eventually reach their limits. With the imminent launch of a new Android & One UI version, a considerable portion of aging Galaxy devices are also approaching the end of their eligibility for future updates. This means that these devices will no longer receive crucial security patches, operating system upgrades, and user interface enhancements. For numerous owners, this signifies the culmination of their device’s lifespan, as they bid farewell to their last software update and say goodbye to the device that has faithfully served them for years.

Samsung Software Support End

Samsung Galaxy A40 and Galaxy A10 smartphones, which were released in the spring of 2019, have now completed their four-year software support cycle under Samsung’s update policy and will no longer receive software updates. Similarly, the Galaxy Tab S5e (SM-T72x) and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) (SM-T51x) tablets have also reached the end of their update program and will no longer receive software support from Samsung.

It’s important to emphasize that the smartphones and tablets listed earlier did not suddenly become unsafe or inoperable. The Samsung Galaxy A40, for instance, has received the March 2023 patch update, and several other devices continue to be reliable even though they only receive updates every six months.

Here’s Some Older Flagships Smartpones

The Samsung Galaxy S10 series, which was launched on the market four years ago, in 2019, represented a significant milestone in the company’s smartphone lineup. Comprising the Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10+, these smartphones were equipped with Android 9-based One UI 1 at launch, and over the years, they received multiple updates to enhance their functionality and security. Today after four years of providing regular security updates, Samsung has removed these smartphones from its official update program. However, the good news is that the devices received the Android 12, with One UI 4.1 and security patches updated to March 2023.

However, the Galaxy S10 Series is not the only one that sees its software support cycle end. The Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50, a mid-range smartphone launched even before the Galaxy S10, is reaching the end of its software support cycle. The device has enjoyed the same level of support as the flagship Galaxy S10 family, receiving monthly security patches for the first three years and then quarterly updates.

This news highlights the fact that even mid-range devices are not immune to the end of their software support and serves as a reminder for users to consider this aspect when making purchasing decisions.

In the same context, the Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Note 10 series was downgraded to quarterly updates, as well as the Galaxy A72M62 and F62, mid-range models launched in 2021, were moved to the semi-annual update schedule.

What about the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy S10 Lite?

The Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy S10 Lite actually entered the market a year later than the other smartphones, so they will still benefit from a year of official software support from the manufacturer.
