How much longer will the Galaxy Note8 have left in terms of monthly updates?
Recently, I wrote about the Galaxy S8 and S8+ being moved to Samsung’s quarterly schedule. This is the second time Samsung have done this, with them doing it last year with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge for the first time. However, 2017’s Galaxy Note flagship remains on the list for monthly updates. So whenContinue reading “How much longer will the Galaxy Note8 have left in terms of monthly updates?”

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ have been moved to a quarterly security update schedule after three years receiving monthly security updates. These phones have now reached their third birthday and it was expected for them to move to a quarterly schedule.
Why Samsung should support their devices for longer
Samsung have always updated their flagships with two major OS upgrades as well as three years of monthly security updates.

Galaxy A31 expected very soon
Last year, the Galaxy A series phones were a massive success. The Galaxy A10 was the best selling Android phone in 2019, proving how successful the then-new phone series was. The Galaxy A51 launched a couple of months back was 2020’s successor to the Galaxy A50, and now Galaxy A fans are waiting for more.
At £1300, the Galaxy Z Flip deserves more than two major OS upgrades
Ever since the original Galaxy S’s release in 2010, Samsung have been providing two major OS upgrades for their flagships. Back then, this was amazing support for Android devices as many manufacturers didn’t even release one major OS upgrade. But in 2020, two major OS upgrades is minimal even for Android devices.
