Samsung Ends Software Support for Some Galaxy Models, But Newer Ones Get Added

Published

on


Samsung has recently published the May 2024 security bulletin on its official site. With this documentation, the company is not limited to sharing the software details but also refreshing the scope tab, where it mentions the devices that are eligible to get security updates according to the frequency.

For your information, Samsung has made three lists of devices: one list is named as the current monthly update, the second list includes the quarterly update devices, and the third list is the biannual security update devices. For starters, in the first list, all the devices mentioned are eligible to get updates every month, while the second list holds the devices that are eligible to get four updates per year, and the last one has the devices that are only eligible to get two updates per year.

Samsung follows the policy of giving security patch updates to certain years, so when the device reaches a limit, it is freely removed from the list, or if any device is running in the last year of its retirement, the company changes the frequency of them. The company will make a few changes with the latest May 2024 security patch.

Samsung removes these devices from the update list and also welcomes new ones

Samsung has made strict decisions in terms of its pre-decided software update policy. Now,  with the fresh set of changes, the Galaxy A71, Galaxy A31, Galaxy A11, and Galaxy M11 are removed from the list. All four devices have reached their limit; the Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A31 were released back in 2020 with the eligibility of five years of software support, while other devices belonging to the budget range that were released in 2020 are only eligible to get four years of software support.

Apart from removing the device, the company has also welcomed some new devices, including the Galaxy C55 5G and the Galaxy M55 5G. The company has also changed the security of the Galaxy A52 4G (Enterprise model).
