When it comes to providing support to former flagships, Samsung is undoubtedly not the most generous company you’d find in the market. The company is usually lightning-quick with pushing updates for its flagships, but that pace drops noticeably when older flagships and not-so-premium devices are considered.
In April, Samsung demoted its 2016 flagships, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, from the monthly security updates group into the quarterly group. Two months later, in June, the two devices were removed altogether from the company’s security updates support list.
Having been succeeded three times already, not many expected Samsung to continue supporting the S7 and S7 Edge, let alone adding them back to the quarterly updates list. So, this surprise inclusion has come as a breath of fresh air for all S7 users.
After receiving overall positive feedback for the Galaxy S10 family, Samsung is determined to extend the winning streak with the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 lineup.
The company will officially unveil its latest creation at the Galaxy Unpacked event in New York on August 7th, and the kind gesture it has shown with the S7 devices would probably come in handy.
