One UI Update Policy: These Samsung devices eligible for Three Android Upgrades



Samsung Android update policy

The software update is a must for every device. Isn’t it? Yes, it is because the updates bring new features, fixes, improvements, and much more for better device performance. However, you can use your smartphone without updating the software update as it is important, not mandatory.

But without updating your device, you will not get new features and bug fixes on your phone. So, if you’re facing any issue on your smartphone then it may be fixed by installing the latest update.

Samsung Android update policy

Back in 2020, Samsung announced that it would provide at least three major Android OS updates to all the flagships from 2019 and later. This update policy began with Galaxy Note 20 series and Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphones.

Previously, most Samsung Galaxy devices received two major and two years of regular monthly security patches, quarterly patches for the third year. But now, Samsung has stepped up its policy and promised to release three major Android updates.

Apart from the Galaxy S and Note series flagship smartphones, Samsung has also listed a number of smartphones of its Galaxy A series to get three years of OS upgrade support. Apparently, all upcoming Samsung phones and tablets from the same segment will feature in the list.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, Flip 5 to receive One UI 6.0 beta in October, Community Moderator confirms



Samsung Fold Flip 5 One UI 6 update

One UI 6.0 Beta update for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 has been delayed, which was scheduled to be released in late September 2023. This announcement is made by Samsung’s Community Moderator through a comment on the Samsung Members app.

For this delay, the moderator stated that more work is required to ensure the stability of the One UI 6.0 beta software for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 smartphones.

In addition, the official assured that the company will do its best to deliver stable software so that the beta version can be launched as early as possible in October after the Chuseok holiday, which is a significant Korean festival that falls in late September this year.

Previously, Samsung’s community moderator had disclosed that the One UI team was working diligently in development and review to complete the beta version with the aim of distributing it within September. However, it seems that the team encountered some issues that required more time to fix.

As Google matches Apple’s 7 OS updates, Samsung must replicate!



Google Pixel OS updates

Samsung guarantees 4 years of Android OS and 5 years of security updates to Galaxy devices. Meanwhile, Google is about to match Apple’s iOS support of 7 years of OS updates, starting with the Pixel 8 series, which Samsung must replicate for Galaxy devices.

In a recent development, a leaked Pixel 8 series specifications sheet revealed that Google will pledge 7 years of Android OS and security updates. It’s about to be the same as Apple does with all of its iPhone models, beating the Samsung software policy by a big margin.

Samsung has a big lead in the smartphone market, thanks to its longer software support. Meanwhile, Google’s tentative announcement will make a big impact on the Galaxy maker’s policy. And to maintain consumer satisfaction, the Korean tech giant must replicate Google.

Google Pixel phones currently offer three generations of OS upgrades and five years of security patches. Samsung, on the other hand, has a wide range of Galaxy devices eligible for 4 OS plus 5 years of security updates. However, Apple’s iPhones get up to 7 years of major iOS upgrades.

The US tech giant will launch the Pixel 8 series on October 4. If it has plans to extend software support, the announcement will be done during the launch. It will be interesting to see if the company includes older Tensor-powered smartphones in new support plan.

Since the Pixel 6 series, Google is bringing a self-designed Tensor chipset, equipped with AI capabilities and machine learning. The Tensor G3 is based on Exynos and is being manufactured by Samsung, with Google plans to switch to TSMC in the next few years.

As the technology is growing such faster, it’s hard to keep a phone for 7 years, as the manufacturer believes. However, Pixel users will continue to rock with their smartphone, as Google could pledge 7 OS upgrades, that will arrive with new features and enhancements.
