Samsung Promises 4 Years of OS Updates and 5 Years of Security Patches

When it comes to Android phones, Samsung is at the forefront of OS updates. Last year, the Korean manufacturer guaranteed three years of OS upgrades and four years of security fixes for its phones, but most other vendors only offered two years of updates.

Samsung, on the other hand, is ramping up its game this year, promising that its flagship phones would receive OS updates for four years and will be safe for five years. This commitment will extend not only to smartphones but also to top tablets, such as the recently announced Galaxy Tab S8.

In brief, the Galaxy S22 series and Tab S8 will receive OS updates that will bring them up to Android 16.

The software support upgrade, however, is only available for flagship phones. This means that only the Galaxy S and foldable Z series will receive extended support, while the Galaxy A and M phones would only receive three years of upgrades.

However, even among flagship phones, extended support will not be available until the S21 series. Unfortunately, the S20 and other previous flagships will be excluded from the new promise.

Samsung will provide extended software support for the following phones:

  • Galaxy S22 phones
  • Galaxy S21 phones
  • Galaxy Tab S8 series
  • Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3
  • Galaxy S21 phones
