The window updates to be granted, typically by a smartphone manufacturer to your models is 24 months in the case of the update functional (new versions of Android, or ROM) and a further 12 months with regard to those yet. Towards the end of this last window also passes from the have updates monthly updates on a quarterly basis. Well, this lot is just touched to the former top of the range Samsung Galaxy S8.

Android 9 Pie was the last big software update to arrive for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, but the two had still not received security patches monthly until a short time ago. Now Samsung is moving in the section that is updated only on a quarterly basis.

But the Samsung Galaxy S8 not have been left alone: to be added to the list there are some new Samsung models, who will also receive critical fixes every three months: the Galaxy A71 5G, A41, A31, A11, M11 and the Tab S6 Lite. These devices have never been part of the monthly cycle, which is reserved only to the premium products from Samsung. In addition, the manufacturer has downgraded the J7 Prices2 in other “regular security updates”, making his situation even more serious, and has completely dropped support for the Galaxy J7 2016.

After this reshuffle, the level of updates on a monthly basis, is now occupied by the Galaxy Note8 and the flagship, the most recent, as well as by the two leaflets and a handful of business models. The Galaxy Note 8 should be the next major model in the line for this downgrade, probably followed by the Galaxy S9.
