4 years of commitment

Samsung Electronics has recently announced that Galaxy devices will now receive regular security updates for a MINIMUM of four years since the initial launch of the phone. Samsung says that the company is offering its customers peace of mind by delivering updates on a monthly or quarterly basis.

XDA developer reports that Samsung has worked closely with over 1,000 of its OS, chipset, and telco partners across the globe to bring Galaxy owners timely updates.

For the first two years since its initial release, the Galaxy device will receive monthly security updates. After the first two years or in its third year, the same Galaxy device will receive security updates every quarter. In its fourth year and onwards, the Galaxy Device will receive one or two updates over a twelve-month period.

With this announcement, Samsung aims to further address the long-running issue with the Android ecosystem of fragmented updates. By offering four years of security updates, Galaxy users should have more peace of mind.

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, said Seungwon Shin, VP & Head of Security Team at Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. 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.
