Samsung Makes Android History With 3-Year Update Pledge

Samsung today treated us to yet another one of its Galaxy Unpacked events, which was an online-only thing this time around for obvious reasons. And while the event introduced numerous new eye-catching luxury mobile devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Note 20, as well as the Galaxy Tab S7 range, Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatches, and the Galaxy Buds Live wireless earbuds, perhaps the most impactful announcement of the day had little to do with new Samsung products and everything to do with old(er) ones.

Because the company casually mentioned it is extending its after-sales support policy to three major Android OS upgrades moving forward. Not every existing Galaxy device is included in the pledge, but many, if not most, are. A final list specifying every single model that will get three major Android updates is expected to be published by Samsung in the coming weeks.

But moving forward, pretty much every new Galaxy device will get treated to three years’ worth of major updates, so actual, meaningful Android revisions such as the incoming One UI 3.0 based on Android 11. A pretty historic moment alltogether and one that might force Samsung’s rivals to follow suit. That kind of competitive pressure is always good news for smartphone fans.
