While Samsung is known for its frequent software updates, some older models have unfortunately reached the end of their support lifecycle. This means they will no longer receive new versions of the Android operating system or critical security patches.

Four Samsung Galaxy Models Reach End of Software Update Cycle

This news comes alongside Samsung’s recent commitment to provide seven years of updates for its latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S24 series. Similar to the Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro, users of these phones can expect consistent software and security support for a significant period. However, this extended support timeframe is not applicable to older models.

Four specific devices have recently been removed from Samsung’s official update list, signifying the end of their software support:

Gizchina News of the week

  • Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. Launched in January 2020, this phone served as a more affordable version of the flagship Galaxy S10 series.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite. Also unveiled in January 2020, this phone offered a lighter take on the premium Galaxy Note 10 experience with the signature S Pen stylus.
  • Samsung Galaxy A71: Released in January 2020, this mid-range phone stood out for its large display and versatile camera system.
  • Samsung Galaxy A02: This budget-friendly phone, introduced in January 2021, offered basic functionality at an accessible price point.

It’s important to note that while these phones are no longer eligible for full software updates, there’s a small possibility that the company might issue a one-time patch in the future to address a critical security vulnerability. However, such instances are uncommon and shouldn’t be relied upon.

Two variants within this group, the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G and the Galaxy A02s, are still receiving security patches. However, it’s unclear how long this support will continue.

For users of these affected models, it’s advisable to consider upgrading to a newer device. To benefit from the latest features, security enhancements, and performance improvements. This not only enhances the user experience but also safeguards them from potential security risks associated with outdated software.
