Here's how the new Galaxy S21's rumored features stack up against last year's Galaxy S20, and how to decide which to buy.Find out if you should go ahead and buy last year's Samsung Galaxy S20, or wait for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 to arrive.
Samsung’s upcoming midrange device, the Galaxy A52 5G, appears to be in line to receive monthly security updates. First, the yet-to-be formally announced A52 5G for its monthly update cycle. Along with earlier — and the main camera will offer optical image stabilization — this looks like Samsung is taking the A51’s successor very seriously.
Samsung generally reserves spots on the monthly update schedule for flagship and higher-end devices. While this isn’t the first time a midrange A-series device has been scheduled for monthly updates, last year’s Galaxy A51 and A51 5G are on the quarterly update schedule. Putting the A52 5G on the monthly schedule makes it more competitive with the likes of the Pixel 4A 5G, which receives frequent updates directly from Google.
What to expect from Samsung’s Galaxy S21 event
Three new phones, new earbuds, and an item trackerSamsung is widely expected to announce its next lineup of flagship phones, which will likely be called the S21, S21 Plus, and the S21 Ultra. The S21 Ultra is rumored to have top-of-the-line specs, cameras, and, in a first for an S-model Galaxy phone, support for Samsung’s S Pen stylus. The S21 and S21 Plus are expected to have similar specs but differentiate in size.

But they’re just as important; regular updates ensure that bugs and issues can be fixed in a timely manner. Samsung has committed toof regular security updates for many of its Galaxy devices, including the A-series. The A52 5G will probably drop down to quarterly and then occasional frequency toward the end of those four years, but this still goes a long way to making the device usable for many years to come.
There’s still no word on an official release date for the Galaxy A52 5G and A52, but it seems likely that a launch is imminent.
