South Korean smartphone maker Samsung has revealed that it will give up to four years of security updates to the Galaxy smartphones that have been unveiled after 2019.
This development comes in the backdrop of the company announcing three years of Android updates for its Galaxy smartphones in 2020.
With this, the company is now coming up with monthly and quarterly updates to the Galaxy phones, providing an extended layer of security. 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 will be a good piece of news for Samsung users as the company’s reputation in terms of updating its devices wasn’t the best.
