Samsung, the Software Update King: Even Having Too Many Devices

Published

on


Samsung is the largest market share holder in terms of device availability. The company makes devices to target every type of customer; therefore, it has different categories of devices, from entry-level to high-end that too in different lineups, including the Galaxy A, Galaxy M, Galaxy F, Galaxy S, and Galaxy Z. Despite having a large number of smartphones, the company still beats other OEMs in terms of new update availability.

Samsung is always takes first place in providing new software updates

Samsung rolled out the One UI 6.0 last year, just after the introduction of Android 14 by Google. At that time, the Korean giant was the only company that actively started rolling out the stable One UI 6.0 update on its devices, while other OEMs like One Plus and Nothing, which don’t have many devices, still don’t receive the update on all the units of the devices.

The One UI 6.0 is not a minor update, but it brings several new features under several existing system-level applications, including Quick Panel, Lock Screen, Home Screen, Typeface, Multitasking, Samsung Keyboard, Content Sharing Weather, Camera, and many more. So there is no excuse available if there is any lack of feature, and the company hasn’t stopped here, but it is also way ahead on the security patches as well.

For instance, the January 2024 security patch is also introduced to Galaxy devices at ideal timing; this time, the company has even beaten Google in terms of providing the security update to the devices.

However, there is a lot of scope where Samsung has to make some improvements, like when any new update is rolled out for the devices, it takes so much time to reach the other devices. Here, the company has to improve the availability, and sometimes, due to overhyped expectations, the company releases new updates to the devices even before properly testing them. For evidence, you can check last year’s camera-related software rollout for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, where users have faced so many issues.

Now if we talk about the latest developments, the Korean giant is all set to introduce a significant update for the devices in the form of One UI 6.1. The company has already showcased it with the Galaxy S24 series, where most of the new features are focused on the AI, which gives a whole new experience for communication. For instance, here is a new live call translation feature, and there are some new assistants like chat assist, transcript assist, and many more. For detailed information, you can check out this article.

As far as the availability of One UI 6.1, it looks like Samsung will beat its own past rollout session of One UI 5.1 availability, so it will be available for the devices. According to some rumors, Samsung could make the update available to all the eligible devices early in March.
