Samsung Announces 7 Years of OS & Security Updates for S24 Series

At its Galaxy Unpacked event, president of Samsung mobile division, TM Roh announced that Samsung will be supporting 7 years of OS and security updates, starting from last year’s S23 Ultra. With OneUI 6.1 out of the box for the S24 series, this means that you will be able to use your phone till OneUI 14, or Android 21.

While lager software support has become somewhat of a competition and trend at this, it’ll take some time to see if there is a catch involved. After all, last year’s devices are stuck to 4 years of updates while this year, you get 7 years of carefree software experience.

Needless to say, this is a huge time, primarily because it fulfills the lifespan of an average phone and it is unlikely that it would continue to function the same as some of the newer devices. With that being said, Samsung had to justify the $100 price bump somewhere and this just seems to be one of those cases (even though the vanilla variants retain the same price).
