Samsung stops supporting Galaxy S7 active and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016)

Those are not the only changes to Samsung’s update schedule, several devices were bumped down from the Quarterly Update list to “Other Regular Security Updates”. Here’s the list:

These were demoted to quarterly updates back in April 2019. At the time the S7 Active was still getting monthly security updates while the Tab A 10.1 was already in the “Other” column.
