One of the major selling points of Google's Pixel phones is that they're guaranteed to get three years of Android OS updates, something that most other smartphone makers don't offer. Except now Samsung does.
Samsung revealed during its Galaxy Unpacked event today that it will provide Android OS updates for up to three years to its recent Galaxy flagship phones. This policy applies to the Galaxy S10 and later, meaning the Note 10, S20, and Note 20 phones should be included as well.
We normally see Samsung's flagship phones get two Android OS updates, so it's great to see Samsung committing to three generations of updates for its flagship Galaxy phones.
As flagship smartphones get more expensive, with many recent models reaching $1,000 or higher, many people are opting to keep their devices longer. Samsung's commitment to three generations of Android OS updates will ensure that those customers' phones will stay up-to-date with new features, making it easier for the people to keep using their devices rather than upgrade.
