Galaxy A20s & A3 2017 September security updates go live (Download links inside)
Needless to say, Samsung is not known for the speedy rollout of the updates. Besides, in the past, it has been one of the OEMs that were trolled severely for lazy update rollouts.
Cut to now, the company is advancing on a different path and is coping up its lost glory in pushing out updates. We have previously reported that a lot of older, as well as newer Samsung devices, are getting either monthly security updates or firmware updates (if available).
Not only this, a quick look at the Samsung Android Update Cycle gives us information related to when and which device will get the updates. A lot of older generation devices that were launched in 2017, have also been included in the list of Samsung’s update cycle.
