Samsung Galaxy S24 series sets a new standard with 7 years of OS update

Samsung has announced a major upgrade to its software update policy for its latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra. The company has confirmed that these devices will receive Android OS updates for seven years, starting from Android 14 and they come out of the box. This means that the Galaxy S24 series will be able to run Android 21, or whatever Google calls it in the future, as their final OS update.

This is a remarkable feat, only Google Pixel 8 series phones have offered such long-term software support for their devices. Even Apple only guarantees five years of OS updates for its iPhone. Samsung’s previous policy was to provide four years of OS updates and five years of security patches for its flagships and select mid-range phones.

Samsung says that this extended update policy is part of its environmental sustainability efforts, as it will enable users to keep their phones for longer and reduce electronic waste. It will also enhance the security and performance of the devices, as well as introduce new features and improvements over time.

However, this new policy only applies to the Galaxy S24 series as of now, and Samsung has not confirmed if it will extend it to other Galaxy phones in the future. It is also unclear how Samsung will handle the availability of hardware components and battery replacements for the Galaxy S24 series, as these factors may affect the longevity of the devices.

The Galaxy S24 series was launched on January 17, 2024, with a focus on AI-powered features and a sleek design. The phones are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which is the first to support Android 14. They also feature a 120Hz AMOLED display, a versatile camera system, a large battery, and fast charging. The Galaxy S24 series is available in various colors and storage options, starting from $799.99 for the Galaxy S24.
