Samsung Galaxy S7 will continue to receive security patches after having completed 3 years


Galaxy S7

Samsung is still the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer by volume of shipments. Although in the past its customized layer on top of Android has been strongly criticized, the company has made an effort in recent years and its new interface named One UI based on Android Pie is the best we’ve seen.

In its latest publication about security, Samsung has indicated that three years after its release, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will continue to receive security updates.

Both smartphones have received the security patch of March and from now on they will do it every three months (instead of once a month as it has been until now).

On the other hand, the Galaxy S10+ / S10 / S10e, Galaxy S7 Active, Galaxy S8 / S8 + / S8 Active, Galaxy S9 / S9 +, Galaxy Note8, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A8 (2018) will continue to receive monthly updates .

Samsung has excluded the Galaxy S7 / S7 edge from the list of devices that will receive Android Pie but, at least, it will continue to receive security updates for longer.
