South Korean smartphone maker Samsung has revealed that it will give up to four years of security updates to Galaxy smartphones unveiled after 2019.
The development comes in the backdrop of the company announcing a three-year Android update for its Galaxy smartphone in 2020.
With this, the company is now coming up with monthly and quarterly updates for Galaxy phones, providing an extended layer of protection. The security updates will be applicable for the Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Galaxy A, Galaxy M, Galaxy Z and Galaxy Xcover smartphone series. It is also for the Galaxy Tab tablet lineup.
This would be good news for Samsung users as the company’s reputation was not the best in terms of updating the company’s devices.
Learning from this, Samsung became the second company after Google to provide rapid updates to its smartphones.
