Samsung announced late on Monday that its Galaxy devices will now receive security updates for a minimum of four years post the intial release of the device.
The company states that by extending support for security updates delivered on a monthly or quarterly basis, it was giving users piece of mind when it comes to data protection.
Talking about this, Suengwon Shin, the VP and Head of Security Team at MCB, Samsung Electronics said: “At Samsung, our number one priority is offering the best and most secure mobile experience to our users, and we’re constantly optimizing the security of our products and services,”
“Mobile devices play such an important role in our lives, it’s only natural that we want to hold onto them longer.
That’s why, thanks to the latest technology advancements, we’re committing to securing Galaxy devices for even longer, so that everything that should be kept protected stays protected.”
This comes after Samsung promised 3 generations of Android updates for its flagships, but this is a different kind of update. The update will mostly be applicable to smartphones launched by the company post-2019. Given below is a detailed list of the devices that are part of the program.
