Samsung is very popular in terms of software updates and the Galaxy S9 series is one of the oldest flagships offered by the company. But now the company has dropped the software update support for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones.
The company has recently updated its tracker for ongoing Android updates, which delisted the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ devices. At the same time, Samsung has shifted the Galaxy S10 to a quarterly update schedule, which means they will get a single update every three months.
To be mentioned the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which was released later in the same year is still eligible to get quarterly Android security patch updates. However, it should also get delisted from the supported Galaxy software update device list in a few months.
Moreover, Samsung is currently offering five years of software updates to its flagship Galaxy phones. Select Galaxy A-series phones such as Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A73 are also eligible to get the new treatment.
However, according to Samsung’s previous software update policy, its flagship devices get four years of software updates, which has been done for the Galaxy S9 series. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S10 is also not eligible for the new software update policy.
Additionally, the last major update that the phone grabbed was the Android 10 OS update. Meanwhile, its last security patch was the March 2022 patch. On the other flip, Samsung Galaxy S10 is running on Android 12-based One UI 4.1 update, which is its last major OS update.
