Revolutionary Era Closes: Samsung Ceases Software Updates for Several Galaxy Devices


Samsung Ends Software Updates for Multiple Galaxy Devices

It’s inevitable that all wonderful things will come to an end someday, and the same is true for Samsung Galaxy devices. This means that the manufacturer will no longer provide new software upgrades for these devices. The length of time that Galaxy devices continue to get software upgrades is determined by Samsung’s strict adherence to a well-defined update policy. Under the prior plan, the business provided software updates for flagship devices for a period of up to five years, with a limit of three new versions per year. Nevertheless, in 2022 Samsung altered this policy and expanded the range of devices that were eligible for specific software updates. Let’s take a more in-depth look at these alterations, shall we?

The Following Samsung Galaxy Models Will No Longer Receive Software Updates

Samsung has decided not to provide future software upgrades for a number of Galaxy smartphones that were released in 2019, including some of the newest models. This suggests that these products will not receive any more upgrades, big or otherwise, in the foreseeable future. Let’s take a deeper look at the different gadgets that are no longer able to receive fresh software updates.

  • Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy X Cover 4S
  • Galaxy A80
  • Galaxy A40
  • Galaxy A10
  • Galaxy A30
  • Galaxy A50
  • Galaxy Tab A10.1 (2019)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.

Despite this, Samsung will on occasion offer supplementary updates in the form of security patches. For instance, the Galaxy S10 series of smartphones have already reached their fourth year, and according to the former policy of the firm, they should not receive any additional upgrades after the security update that is released in March 2023. On the other hand, an unexpected new update was found on a number of carriers in the United States, including Verizon, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and US Cellular.



In addition to this, Samsung startled its customers by providing a new update for the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e even after the company had announced that it would no longer provide official software support. These devices had already passed the end of their fourth year, which indicated that, according to the original policy, they were not intended to receive any more upgrades after the security update that was released in March 2023.



Please take into consideration that the aforementioned list was built using data obtained from Samsung’s official page. These pieces of hardware are not eligible for the security update category at this time.
