Samsung has made a major change in its software update policy this year. The company is providing 4 major Android OS upgrades in addition to 5 years of security patch updates to its flagship and some select Galaxy A series phones.
The Galaxy A73, A53, and A33 that were launched this year are eligible for the new software update policy and will get 4 Android updates in the future. On the other side, it is highly expected that the Galaxy A52s will also receive the same treatment of 4 major Android updates.

Android 13-based One UI 5.0 is the next major switch for the device, while the Android 14-based One UI 6 will be the last.
But users are not satisfied with this treatment of the company when the phone is totally worth 4 for the major Android update. The company should also provide advanced software treatment for select older mid-range phones, such as Galaxy A52, A52s, and A72, as well.
