Samsung is one of the best smartphone manufacturers around the globe. Moreover, the Korean giant is invincible in terms of sending constant security updates to its flagships. On that note, Samsung security update support for the 2018 launched Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9+ winds down. Whereas, the successor Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy A50 will now get quarterly updates.
The update train for Samsung Galaxy S9 & Galaxy S9+ has reached its last station at March 2022 security patch. The company has quietly removed the lineup from its mobile security page, indicating the end of software update support for the two mobile phones.
As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ were unveiled in 2018 with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. As promised by Samsung, the devices received two major Android OS updates with Android 9 and Android 10 along with One UI 2.5. After these major upgrades, the company announced last year that the duo will get quarterly security updates. Maybe this was a hint by the brand to prepare for the end of updates to the Galaxy 9 series.
On the other hand, 2019 launched Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy A50 will no longer get monthly security patches. In fact, they are now shifted to get the updates quarterly. The Galaxy S10 series is currently running on the Android 12 based One UI 4.1, while the Galaxy A50 is still on Android 11 OS. Both lineups could be the next to end their update journey by the next year.
