Samsung Releases List of Devices Getting Updates In Next 3 Years; Is Your Samsung Device On The List?

At Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event in early August, the South Korean device maker guaranteed it will support at least “three generations of Android operating system updates” for selected Galaxy devices.

Samsung has since released the list of devices to receive updates and it includes:

  1. Galaxy S series: Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, S20 Ultra, S20+ 5G, S20+, S20 5G, S20 in addition to S10 5G, S10+, S10, S10e, S10 Lite and upcoming S series devices.
  2. Galaxy Note series: Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, Note20 Ultra, Note20 5G, Note20, Note10+ 5G, Note10+, Note10 5G, Note10, Note10 Lite and upcoming Note series devices
  3. Galaxy Foldable devices: Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Z Fold2, Z Flip 5G, Z Flip, Fold 5G, Fold and upcoming Z series devices
  4. Galaxy A series: Galaxy A71 5G, A71, A51 5G, A51, A90 5G and select upcoming A series devices
    Tablets: Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G, Tab S7+, Tab S7 5G, Tab S7, Tab S6 5G, Tab S6, Tab S6 Lite and upcoming Tab S series devices

Samsung has generally guaranteed two years of updates on its phone but now depending on the definition of “generations”, Samsung phones enjoy as many as 3 years of updates.

For example, Samsung says its Galaxy S20 phones will receive “three OS upgrades starting with Android 11,” meaning that unless Android’s naming or release schedule changes the phones should go on to receive Android 12 in 2021, and Android 13 in 2022. The extension of support for the newest Android updates is great for owners looking to extend the lives of their Android devices.

Beyond these phones, Samsung says it’s “committed to providing the latest Android OS upgrades until the hardware specifications allow.”
