Samsung new policy update:
For quite a while, Samsung was one of the most noticeably worst culprit parties regarding failures in security patches for its gadgets. It was likewise unimaginably delayed at conveying the most recent Android versions to even its most costly leaders.
A year ago, Samsung shocked us by declaring it would support its latest devices with three years of Android upgrades. That is an additional year on top of the valid two-year update guarantee Google expects of OEMs; however hardly ever authorizes.
New policy for Samsung updates
Currently, Samsung just reported a new policy for its updates. It expresses that all Android-based Galaxy-marked gadgets from 2019 or later will presently get four years of security covers. That incorporates each Galaxy line: Note, A, XCover, Galaxy S, and Tab for a sum of more than 130 different models.
As compared with the past policy change, this implies that all future devices and tablets will get three years of Android updates and four years of security covers. Besides Google itself, there could be no other organization with that expansive of a policy.

Samsung leading the charge
As mobile security turning into a serious concern, it’s incredible to see it’s conducting the charge here. With different organizations proceeding to perform at the absolute minimum level and others going backward, we hope to dream this will start a significant change in the overall business.
Presently there are security updates and not huge operating system updates. Samsung, as of late, guaranteed three ages of Android operating system updates for its leaders, but that is an entirely diverse thing.
Security updates can be quarterly or month to month, and they may take more time to get to a particular gadget, depending upon its area or carrier.
