Samsung Security Updates Rolling Out to Mid-Range Galaxy Devices
More Samsung Galaxy devices will get major and minor updates. The South Korean tech giant has always been committed to improving the way it releases software and firmware upgrades. Several One UI releases have been made in the past few weeks and months. We can expect more will roll out and at a much faster pace since development is also becoming faster. Android 11 is now available to most premium flagships from Samsung and we can expect more devices will get the latest update.
Apart from the Android 11 One UI updates, Samsung also has the security updates. They come more regularly now than ever some monthly while others roll out quarterly.
Samsung has set three frequency categories: monthly, quarterly, and other regular. The latter is mainly biannual which means software updates are released twice a year only.
