Samsung’s Software Support Ends for 4 More Devices, Reduces Update Schedule for Others

Samsung has started rolling out the October 2023 update for its eligible Galaxy devices. It is currently live for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold in the US, and soon the company will expand the update to more Galaxy devices. This is good news for users, but along with this, there is some negative news that Samsung has ended the software support on some devices.

Samsung has ended software support for four devices

Samsung has retired all four Galaxy devices that were introduced back in 2019, including the Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy A90 5G, Galaxy M10s, and Galaxy M30s. All these devices have grabbed their updates as promised by the company. For your information, at the time of release, the company followed the policy of giving a maximum of three Android updates and four years of security updates, so as all four devices were introduced in the third quarter of 2019, it has chosen the exact four-year time to end the software update.

It is worth noticing that the company has removed only the LTE/WiFi variant of the Galaxy Tab S6 from the software support list, while the Galaxy Tab S6 5G and Galaxy Tab S6 Lite are still included in the list and will get more new updates.

Samsung changed the update frequency for these Galaxy devices

Apart from removing the devices from the software update list, Samsung has also changed the frequency of updates for some devices and downgraded them. The Galaxy A03s, Galaxy M32, Galaxy M32 5G, and Galaxy F42 5G are shifted to the Biennial Update category, which means now all these devices are eligible to get only two security patch updates per year. Samsung does it to make sure that older devices will get only some significant updates according to their hardware, which makes them work properly.
