Last week, we informed Samsung’s flagship smartphones Galaxy S20 & Galaxy Note 20 will no longer receive major software updates. This time, Samsung has added a few more Galaxy devices to the list, including a flagship one. As the company noted, the first-gen Galaxy Fold users can not expect other major firmware files. For the original foldable phone, Android 14 or One UI 6 will be the last software update. It was launched in 2019, and since it is receiving all the major versions.
In the Galaxy A & Galaxy M series, some devices will not get new updates. The company announced Galaxy A20s, Galaxy A30s, Galaxy A50s, and Galaxy A70s smartphones will no longer be eligible. In the Galaxy M series, Galaxy M22 & Galaxy M52 5G have opted out of future updates. All these mid-range models were launched before 2020 and served for nearly four years.
The new company policy has mentioned providing four years of support for every model. All these devices have received all the major security updates for more than three years. It means they will not be eligible for the next One UI 6 or One UI 6.1 firmware versions. In the next few months, we could see more flagship & mid-range devices in the opted list.
