Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce a new software update policy for its upcoming Galaxy S24 series, which will provide users with seven years of major software updates. This move comes after Google announced that its Pixel 8 series would receive major software updates for seven years, placing Samsung in a position where it needs to catch up.
While the report notes that this information is still a rumor and hasn’t been confirmed by Samsung, it’s likely that the company will make such an announcement given its commitment to its smartphones. The new policy is expected to start with the latest and greatest phones that Samsung will announce in four days, and it’s unclear whether older devices will be eligible for the extended update period.
The prospect of seven years of software updates sounds promising, but it raises questions about whether users will stick with their phones for that long. Seven years is a considerable amount of time, and technological advancements occur rapidly, so it will be interesting to see how many users decide to keep their 2024 phone for an extended period.
The Galaxy S24 series is set to launch on January 17, and we’ll keep you updated on all the details that Samsung has to share. While we can’t confirm what the new phones will offer, rest assured that they’ll deliver something remarkable, and you won’t be disappointed.
