Samsung Galaxy Device Out Of The Race For Software Upgrade

No matter what brand or how expensive your smartphone is, one thing will be common: they will no longer get software upgrades once the time limit is over. A time limit means a set limit for each device about how many software updates it will get and for how long. Samsung also has its own terms and policies for delivering software updates to its Galaxy devices. And according to that, it delivers the upgrades.

Usually, Samsung rolls out the latest update first for its flagship Galaxy devices, for instance, the Galaxy S23 lineup. The brand has made separate policies for each range of devices, whether they are flagship, mid-range, or budgetable devices, and how many updates are to be given to which range of devices.

Why does Samsung stop delivering software upgrades after a Time limit?

Once the Galaxy smartphones cross over the allotted limit of software upgrades, then they no longer get any kind of software update, and the company also no longer supports that device anyhow. The reason behind stopping support is that with time, new technology comes, and the software of the old device does not have enough capability to adopt or work on new mechanisms or technologies. That’s why they get out of the race for new software upgrades.

Here’s the list of Galaxy devices that lost their software support

Unfortunately, some Galaxy devices have crossed the validity threshold to get new software updates. Here in this article, we are mentioning the Galaxy Devices, which debuted in 2019 and have received all the allotted updates but now have lost their software support.

No More Samsung One UI Major Software Updates

Noticeably, once the Galaxy smartphones meet the criteria of receiving major OS updates,  the brand usually changes the frequency of delivering monthly security patches. Instead of getting monthly patches, devices start getting quarterly patches, or sometimes biennial patches.

Here are the devices that fall under biennial updates (security patches twice a year).

  • Galaxy A03s
  • Galaxy M32
  • Galaxy M32 5G
  • Galaxy F42 5G
