Every Good thing has its end, and this saying is right for the Galaxy devices, which are no longer eligible to get any new software updates from the company. For your information, Samsung follows a policy for software updates; in this policy, the company decided to give updates to the Galaxy devices. In the previous policy, the company had decided to give the software updates up to five years, during which the Flagship devices could get a maximum of three updates. In 2022, Samsung changed the software policy and also extended software eligibility to some devices. Let’s have a look.
Galaxy devices, which are no longer eligible for software updates
Several Galaxy devices that were launched back in 2019 are now kicked out by Samsung from the software update session, meaning that these devices will not get any major or minor updates in the future. Let’s check out the devices that are no longer eligible for new updates.
- Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e
- Galay X Cover 4S

- Galaxy A40
- Galaxy A10
- Galaxy A30
- Galaxy A50

However, Samsung sometimes rolls out extra updates in the form of some security patches. For example, the Galaxy S10 series devices have already crossed the fourth year, so the company has stopped rolling out any new updates for the devices after the March 2023 security update. But surprisingly, a new update has been spotted on some US carriers, including Verizon, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and US Cellular.
Along with this, After software support had ended, Samsung released a new update for the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10. These devices have already crossed the fourth year, so the company has stopped rolling out any new updates for the devices after the March 2023 security update.
