Samsung is the only company that gives tough competition to Google in terms of distributing new updates to devices; most of the time, Samsung beats Google in serving new security updates. The company has also pre-decided about how many updates will be available to any particular device; let’s explore it more.
Samsung issued a policy back in 2022 in which the company has listed several devices eligible for five years of software updates; there will be four Android updates and some security updates for five years.
As per the list, Samsung has chosen several Galaxy devices, including Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and many more. To know about the full list, you can visit this link.
Meanwhile, the other old devices are shifted to fewer update categories like Galaxy A24; the device was introduced in April, and Samsung added this device to the Quarterly update category. Meanwhile, the Galaxy M42 and Galaxy A7 Lite are downgraded to biannual updates, which means these devices are only eligible for only two updates per year. The Galaxy S10 5G is also no longer eligible for any update.
Additionally, these devices will also no longer be eligible for any major updates, which indicates that they will be running on Android 13-based One UI 5.1 update.
