List Of Samsung Galaxy Devices That'll Get 3 Years Of Android Updates

This week, Samsung is reiterating its commitment, as well as clarifying which devices are eligible for this update support. Before the announcement, Samsung also promised to service its Galaxy devices with Android updates for a maximum period of two years. "As people hold onto their devices for longer, we are working to bring secure protection and exciting new features to the devices already in their hands". That includes the S10 and S20 line of phones, and also more niche devices like the Galaxy Fold, which was recently retroactively added to be part of Samsung's Galaxy Z line of foldable devices.

For example, the Galaxy S20 lineup, announced in February 2020 powered by Android 10, will get support for three OS upgrades, starting with Android 11.

Better yet, you can get a $150 gift card, complimentary Verizon Stream TV device, Echo Dot, and Amazon Smart Plug as well if you switch from a different carrier, which basically means the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G UW will be yours at absolutely no charge when considering all those freebies.

Thus, these test builds are of a major OS update, likely One UI 2.5.

Here is the full list of Galaxy phones that Samsung has committed to supporting for three generations of Android.

However, it's important to note that Samsung says it will provide three generations of Android upgrades, not three years of Android updates, which aren't the same thing. Either way, future Note20, Note20 Ultra, Z Flip 5G, and Z Fold2 owners don't have to put up with Samsung's godawful stock launcher just to keep gesture navigation.

The source reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition may be launched with Snapdragon 865SoC, but according to Geekbench, the phone was spotted with an Exynos 990 Chipset.
