Earlier, the company made it a point to provide its smartphones with Android updates for longer.
In addition to its most recent premium smartphone, the Galaxy S21, cheaper models such as the Samsung Galaxy A10 and Samsung’s tablets are also covered by the new strategy. According to Samsung itself, it concerns more than 100 models (full list at the bottom of the article).
All devices of the Galaxy family that have appeared on the market from 2019, fall under the new strategy. “Mobile devices play such an important role in our lives that it is only logical that we want to enjoy them for as long and as safely as possible,” says Davy Moons, Mobile Marketing Manager at Samsung’s Belgian branch.
By releasing security updates more frequently, Samsung wants to further distinguish itself from competing Android brands. On average, Google releases security updates for Android every month, but it is up to smartphone manufacturers to bring them to consumers.
Technology website Android Police has been keeping track of which companies keep their smartphones up-to-date for some time now. In addition to Google itself, Samsung in particular scores well in the survey. By bringing updates to consumers as soon as possible, potential security vulnerabilities can be closed more quickly.
