The topic of Android updates is a painful point for Google: For years, the developer of the successful mobile operating system has been trying to get hardware partners to do faster and longer updates. Google has already presented its in-house pixel smartphones and has been offering an update period of three years for years. The manufacturer does not yet get the up to five years for which Apple supplies its iPhones with updates, but the period is exemplary in the Android world. Now Samsung is following suit - at least for some model series.

A large number of well-known manufacturers generally provide an update guarantee for their Android smartphones of a maximum of two years, although some promise to offer regular security patches for three years. For devices that now cost over 1,000 euros, this is not particularly long, especially since the average usage time before a new smartphone is purchased continues to increase. According to a forecast by market researchers at Gartner, the current useful life will increase from 2.6 years to just under three years by 2023. With the new update promise, Samsung is apparently adapting to the ever longer service life.

However, the extended update guarantee does not apply to all models, but primarily to the higher-priced smartphones. Compared to The Verge , a Samsung spokesman said that in addition to the Galaxy S class, the Note and Z series would also benefit from longer updates.

The models of the Galaxy S20 (test) and Note 20 families , which will be delivered with Android 10, will be launched in 2020 and will be followed by updates to Android 11, to Android 13 in 2022. This also applies to the foldables of the Z series in the form of the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold 2 . The latter will only come onto the market in September 2020.

And what about the cheaper models of the A series, like the A51 and A71? The manufacturer apparently does not want to make any binding promise to update these devices. Since the smartphones generally have a weaker configuration, Samsung is not sure whether they would meet the hardware requirements of the future Android versions. However, the A-series models are supported as long as the hardware allows, Samsung explains.

It is to be hoped that other manufacturers will follow Samsung and Google as an example and provide their devices with the latest software for longer in the future. Such a development is long overdue.
