Summary (IA Generated)

security-concerns-techcrunch/”>Samsung has announced that it’ll be extending the amount of time that its Galaxy smartphones and tablets will be getting security updates.

It’s important to note that Samsung is only promising four years of “regular security updates,” which is actually Samsung’s lowest tier of update frequency, reserved for devices that it still supports but without the promise of a monthly or quarterly cadence.

And there are far fewer models of Pixel hardware to support than the 40-plus phones and tablets for which Samsung is promising security updates.

The other important caveat here is that Samsung is promising security updates for at least four years, not Android OS updates.

Today’s news from Samsung is also not the same commitment that Google and Qualcomm made in December to ensure that phones with new Qualcomm chips will support both four Android OS updates and four years of security updates.
