However, with some devices getting older, the company needs to change its software policy. This is the case of the Galaxy A20s, A30s, A50s, and A70s, which should only be for now Receive semi-annual security updates.
Previously, these devices were updated every three months and are now reduced to the semi-annual option.
With this change, Samsung says that said devices should only receive security fixes twice a year, but this does not affect the brand’s commitment.
Samsung has confirmed that devices released in 2019 or later will be eligible for at least four years of security updates, and since all of the above phones were released in 2019, they will receive Android security patches until 2023.
It’s worth noting that despite its promise of four years of updates, nothing stops Samsung from putting older smartphones into a slow cycle. This makes the company able to devote itself to the latest models.
