Samsung commits 4 years to update security on smartphones from 2019 onwards


Samsung has taken a strong stance on security by offering an extended support of security updates for its smartphones.

All Galaxy phones from the Z, S, Note, A, M, XCover and Tab series, launched since 2019 will receive at least four years of security updates, the smart device giant said.

At the time of going to press the list include more than 130 models.

The company said the updates are strictly security related and not major operating system updates.

Samsung recently promised 3 generations of Android OS updates for its flagships, but that is a separate thing altogether from this four-year security updates.

The company said the security updates can be quarterly or monthly and they can take longer to get to a specific device, depending on its location or carrier.

Here’s the full list of devices that are eligible for at least 3 years of security updates, and this excluded the Galaxy A02 but includes the Galaxy A02s, and both the the Galaxy M02 and M02s are also not on the list, so it is not clear if they are among the supported devices.
