Samsung Galaxy Note 20’s biggest feature is actually OS updates. Let me explain

Presumably one of the important issues Samsung introduced at its Unpacked occasion was that the corporate would assist as much as three generations of OS updates for Galaxy telephones courting again to the Galaxy S10.


Amid the numerous phones, tablets and accessories Samsung announced at its on-line Unpacked occasion earlier this month there was one second towards the top that stood out. And no it wasn’t the cameo by the group BTS once they confirmed off the new Galaxy Z Fold 2. Because the digital present wrapped up, Samsung confirmed off costs and availability for its new Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. And one of many slides the corporate confirmed learn, “OS updates as much as three generations”.

This can be a enormous deal. Sometimes Android phone-makers promise one typically two main OS updates and two years of safety updates. And that has at all times bugged me once I assessment Android phones, particularly when Apple affords 5-6 years of OS updates and safety patches. 

One other manner to have a look at it’s that the Galaxy Notice 20 was essentially the most reasonably priced cellphone Samsung confirmed off this month and it prices $1,000 (£849). And irrespective of how wonderful it’s, it is exhausting to suggest anybody purchase a $1,000 cellphone that can solely be supported for two years. And remember that the Galaxy Notice 20 Extremely prices $1,300 (£1,179) and who is aware of how a lot the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will price? The unique Galaxy Fold price $1,980 (£1,508).

Curiously sufficient, the longer OS assist applies to Samsung telephones just like the Galaxy S10 and newer. Nonetheless, the time period “three generations” is the place there might be room for ambiguity. Does that imply three generations of Android OS like Android 10, 11 and 12? Or does that imply three generations of Galaxy units just like the S10, S20 and S30? And the way lengthy will it take Samsung to launch three generations of updates?

Whereas there’s nonetheless extra to find out about Samsung’s dedication to extra software program updates, I hope different Android phone-makers comply with swimsuit with their telephones.
