Future Galaxy smartphones may be updated for 7 years

Google set a new standard for smartphone software support when it announced that the latest Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will be updated for 7 years. As it turns out, Samsung is now working on something similar. Shin-Chul Baik, chief engineer and manager of the Mobile Experience division, spoke about this at the Samsung developer conference.

Samsung wants to further extend the software support period for its smartphones

It should be noted right away that we are not talking about guaranteed seven Android updates. Shin-Chul Bike is part of the team responsible for the security of mobile devices. He said Samsung is actively discussing how it can extend security updates beyond the five years of support that Samsung currently guarantees for some of its devices.

Here you need to understand one thing: Samsung is not Google. She doesn’t have two or three smartphones in the current line, but about a hundred. But there are also old ones and tablets. The company ends up releasing more than 10 billion updates every year, and Samsung has invested heavily in making this possible.

Thus, in the future, perhaps Samsung will indeed increase the software support period for its smartphones, but it will most likely look like this: 5 years of Android updates and another 2 years of security updates.
