When a new version is released Android, smartphone owners are divided into two groups. Some are waiting when it will be possible to download it, and the second realizes with bitterness that their time has passed and they will not receive updates. It turns out that you need to buy a new phone or hope at the mercy of the manufacturer, which is not profitable to support old devices? Usually, it is believed that if Android – the smartphone is updated within a couple of years, this is already good. But the other day Samsung announced that now its smartphones will receive three updates Android. This is a serious claim and it will not be easy to comply with it. When Google does this, it's understandable, but for others it's really cool. Now the time has come, and the company has revealed which smartphones will receive updates for so long. Is yours among them?
Samsung may set the trend for long smartphone updates. It would be nice.
Long update of Samsung smartphones
Samsung's decision to announce such a major move is well justified. The company is now going through hard times, like other manufacturers. Despite the abundance of good models, those who want to buy them less than they would like. This is especially true for the expensive versions of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20.
The company urgently needs to somehow raise the level of sales and increase its audience. There will be a drop in prices for smartphones, but this will happen relatively soon. Let it be a matter of the next few months, as practice shows, but you need to sell gadgets now. It will not be possible to do this simply by advertising and the next layering of characteristics. Now many manufacturers have almost equally good smartphones and you will not surprise anyone with their characteristics.
Smartphone updates can be local, or the entire OS can be updated.
Also, now in the world there is a general drop in sales of smartphones, since they no longer change very much, the market is oversaturated, and people simply do not have money against the backdrop of the global crisis. It will no longer be possible to search for new reserves of demand, and therefore it is necessary to somehow entice customers from competitors, because someone still needs smartphones.
In the end, it is the promise of a long update that could be the stone that buyers put on the Samsung scale when choosing a new smartphone.
Which Samsung smartphones will receive Android 13
Before that, everything said about the long update was serious information, but still it was more related to conversations. Now this is officially confirmed by a press release.
Updating smartphones is very good. It's nice when manufacturers don't forget about it.
In it, Samsung explains which smartphones, foldable devices and tablets will receive operating system updates three versions Android ahead. The program was already announced during the presentation of the Note 20. As expected, the announcement includes devices starting with the Galaxy S10, which was introduced last year.
At the moment, for example, Samsung Galaxy S20 owners can look forward to three upcoming versions Android. In addition, according to Samsung, the S20 series should also be the first to receive an upgrade to Android 11. Current plans are to extend to Android 13 in 2022. Let me remind you that a smartphone came out on Android 10. It turns out that Android 11, Android 12 and Android 13 – everything is correct.
This is a Samsung Galaxy S10 and will receive updates up to Android 12
As expected, the list of smartphones published by Samsung includes not only the flagships of the S or Note series, but also the Galaxy A smartphones.This also gives the owners of this smartphone, or those looking to buy it, clarity about the future of this relatively inexpensive device.
These Samsung models will be updated for an unusually long time compared to the rest of the brand's models.

When will Samsung phone updates come out?
However, Samsung has not provided any information on exactly when and how quickly the device will receive the update. In fact, this is not so important, since it is logical to assume that the date fork will not be more than three or four months. Otherwise, it will stretch for so much that it will be unnecessary. The only annoying thing is a small clarification that the availability of an update may vary by region and device.

Samsung wants to use long-term updates to support users who have been using their devices for longer periods of time and do not buy a new smartphone or tablet every two years. Hopefully, other smartphone makers will also promise long-term software support in the future.
