When it comes to security updates, Samsung’s Android-powered devices roughly fall into two categories – ones that get monthly updates and ones that get a security patch once every three months.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, now three years old, continue to be supported but they will no longer be getting monthly updates (the S7 active was spared this fate, however). The Galaxy Note FE is technically from 2017, but is really a reborn Note7 from 2016 so it too goes down to the quarterly schedule.
It’s not entirely based on age, however. Samsung’s flagships – S8 and younger – are treated to monthly updates, as are the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A8 (2018) for some reason. But don’t think that the relatively premium A-series is on par with the S-phones.
The new Galaxy A70 – which isn’t even on sale yet! – is starting life with quarterly upgrades. Its siblings (A50 through A10) as well as the M-phones (M30 through M10) are in the same boat. As are all of Samsung’s tablets, including the Galaxy Tab S5e, which is due to hit stores this Thursday.
