If you own a Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite or a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite, then not receiving security updates could make you worry. Fortunately, Samsung is confirming that the two devices will receive the Android Security Updates monthly from now on, and they won’t stop.
Many of the companies from the smartphone market are not treating the budget or lower-device in the same way with the premium models. So having this kind of news from Samsung, it is a big deal. As we mentioned above, many of the lower-priced phones are updated once in a quarter and not monthly like the premium ones. This fact is upsetting for the users that own a device from that category. Samsung officially announced that from now on, the company would send security updates monthly.
Besides this, we know that all the companies are launching devices similar to their flagships, but with reduced specifications. Many of these specifications don’t include water resistance, wireless charging, glass or metal body, and not even the monthly security updates.
Android Security Updates To Come To Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite Monthly
This is the case for Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, the device from the budget list. Samsung is not the only one with this kind of model. The company has the A-series and the M-series phones, while Apple has the XR model, and Google comes with the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.
Unfortunately, not all the budget models are so lucky such as S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite. For example, the Samsung Galaxy A71 will not receive a monthly update, only once in a quarter. Alongside Galaxy, A71 is Galaxy A51. The only model promoted to the bi-monthly update is Samsung Galaxy A70.
Ultimately, Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy Note 10 Lite, and Galaxy A71 will share one good point; the OS update for Android 11 will come at the same time next year for all three phones, and even Android 12 in 2022.
