Android updates are often the butt of jokes, but things are slowly getting a lot better. Samsung was the one to roll out the Android update, and now, the company is rolling out the July 2021 security update to its Galaxy lineup.
Gto5Google revealed, Samsung has promised five years of security updates. Devices eligible for Samsung’s five-year update promise include only the enterprise editions of the Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy XCover 5, and Galaxy Tab Active 3.
All of the company’s other devices will get four years of security updates, just like all other Samsung devices from 2019 or later.
Samsung is also equipping them with the Knox Suite which serves as a mobile command center for the enterprise.
There is a high chance that Samsung will also provide a five-year security update for its non-enterprise models. As far as security firmware goes, Samsung says the five-year patch for the company’s flagships will be broken down into monthly and quarterly updates.
The update carries build number G973FXXSBFUF3 and doesn’t appear to include anything other than the usual bug fixes and security improvements.
