Samsung mobiles will receive security updates for four years from now.

Samsung announced this Monday a improved support policies for your Android devices, confirming that, from now on, your devices will receive security updates for four years, and not for three as before.

This measure affects devices released as of 2019, and is in addition to the measure announced a few months ago, by which the extension of the support period to three years in terms of system updates was confirmed.

Initially, they will be 43 Samsung mobile and tablet models who will benefit from this measure.

As announced by the company, within this four year period several phases will be carried out. During the first two years, devices will receive monthly security updates.

Once the first two years are up, updates will be carried out on a quarterly basis. Finally, during the fourth year, they will be released updates on a "regular" basis, but a specific frequency is not specified as it will vary based on the importance of each update.

"Samsung Electronics announced today that Galaxy devices will now receive regular security updates for a minimum of four years after the phone's initial launch. By expanding support for security updates delivered monthly or quarterly, Samsung gives users the peace of mind of knowing that their data is protected while using their Galaxy device.".

Thus, Samsung is positioned as the firm with better policy regarding support, even surpassing Google, which only ensures three years of system and security updates for your Piuxel devices. However, this could change after the last alliance between Google and Qualcomm.
