Samsung has just published the list of Galaxy smartphones that will be able to receive three major updates to their operating system.
So that we can access an increasingly richer mobile experience, Samsung has adopted a strategy that consists of allowing owners of certain Galaxy devices to benefit from three generations of Android updates. We now know the names of the devices eligible for this program. It is through a press release published on its website that the manufacturer provided the information. For the Galaxy S series, in addition to the upcoming series, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, S20 Ultra, S20 + 5G, S20 +, S20 5G and S20 can thus be updated to three versions of the Google OS.
What about the South Korean giant’s other Android devices?
Galaxy Note devices of Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, Note20 Ultra, Note20 5G, Note20, Note10 + 5G, Note10 +, Note10 5G, Note10 and Note10 Lite complete the list. Obviously, the next smartphones in this range will be compatible with the three versions of Android deployed after their release. For example, the Galaxy Note 10 announced in August 2019 running Android 9 will benefit from support for three upgrades of its operating system from Android 10.
Samsung’s foldable terminals are also on the list. Owners of Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Z Fold2, Z Flip 5G, Z Flip, Galaxy Fold 5G and Galaxy Fold can therefore expect to taste the experiences provided by the three major versions of Android following their release. For the Galaxy A range, the Galaxy A71 5G, A71, A51 5G, A51 and A90 5G are supported in addition to future devices in this range.
A decision that also concerns tablets
Samsung’s new update schedule is not just for Galaxy S, Galaxy Note and Galaxy A smartphones. The list also includes Galaxy Tab S tablets. Galaxy Tab S7 + 5G, Tab S7 +, Tab S7 5G 3, Tab S7, Tab S6 5G 4, Tab S6, Tab S6 Lite and the next slates of the Tab S series will thus be entitled to their three major updates.
