  • Samsung is reportedly considering providing security updates for over five years.

  • According to reports, the company intends to increase their efforts in response to recent regulations.


Google made a significant move last week by announcing that the Pixel 8 phones will receive OS and security updates for a period of seven years. This commitment surpasses Samsung, the former frontrunner in terms of update policies among major Android brands.

Samsung may be considering extending its security update commitment beyond its current offering. According to Samsung executive Shin-Chul Baik, the company is in talks to potentially provide more than five years of security updates for its devices.
