Samsung extends software support for the Galaxy S20 series

Sagar, 10 April 2024

The Samsung Galaxy S20 series comprising Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra will no longer get monthly security updates since they are past Samsung's promised software support timeline.

The Korean brand has moved the S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra to a quarterly update schedule and will release security updates for these phones every three months. However, it's unclear how long this S20 trio will continue to receive security patches from Samsung.
