  • Samsung just announced a new policy for Samsung updates.
  • The policy states that all Android-based Galaxy-branded devices from 2019 or later will now get four years of security patches.
  • That includes every Galaxy line: Galaxy S, Note, Z, A, XCover, and Tab, for a total of over 130 models.
Last year, Samsung surprised us all by announcing it would support its most recent phones with three years of Android upgrades. That’s an extra year on top of the de facto two-year upgrade promise Google requires of OEMs (but rarely enforces).

Today, Samsung upped the ante on that promise. Now, every Galaxy-branded Android device from 2019 or later will get four years of security patches. These Samsung updates will land on all devices from its various lines: Galaxy S, Note, Z, A, XCover, and Tab.

First lure the customers by promising updates for 3 or 4 years& then make the device unusable within 2 years.
Great strategy :ROFLMAO:

Apart from that, the post 1 year software updates makes the device laggy. Do you guys have also experienced the same issue or it is just me?

Once you buy a device, the newer updates are good/fixes many bugs device got initially. Later on they deliberately push updates to slowdown the device. I have experienced this with Samsung S series flagship devices.
