Samsung Galaxy S22, S21, and more will get four years of OS updates!


Last updated: February 22nd, 2022 at 13:27 UTC+01:00

Samsung had made a huge announcement today regarding software updates. The company has confirmed at its Unpacked event that it will now provide four years of Android OS upgrades to select devices.

As you’d probably expect, the new Galaxy S22 series is on the list. There are a few existing devices that have also been given this benefit. It’s great to see that Samsung is forging a new path for Android OEMs.

Samsung to release four Android OS upgrades for select devices

The company confirmed today that select Galaxy S, Galaxy Z and Galaxy A series smartphones in addition to Galaxy tablets will get four generations of One UI and Android OS upgrades. The company also confirms that select Galaxy devices will also receive up to five years of security updates.

Such incredible software support has been unheard of for Android devices. Samsung is putting its flagship devices and even mid-ranges in a class of their own. Customers will certainly appreciate the promise of enhanced support.

As of now, the entire Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy S21 series including the Galaxy S21 FE are confirmed to get four Android OS upgrades. All Galaxy S phones released in the future will get this level of support as well.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are supported as well in addition to all models that come later on. The new Galaxy Tab S8 series is supported as well. Samsung confirms that select new Galaxy A phones due this year will be supported for four upgrades as well.

We’ve created a list of Samsung devices that get four Android OS upgrades. You can bookmark it and check back as it will be updated whenever new devices are confirmed by Samsung.
