The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are two of the oldest devices offered by the Korean tech giant. While the devices have remained brilliant in a few hands for four years, the company has released software updates that support them.
Recently, the company regularly updated its tracker for Android updates, which removed the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ names. At the same time, Samsung has updated the Galaxy S10 for a quarterly update period, which means they will receive a quarterly update.
It should be noted that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which was released at the end of the same year, is also eligible for the quarterly Android security patch update. However, it should be removed from the list of supported Galaxy software updates in a few months.
Samsung is currently offering five years of software updates to its flagship Galaxy phones. Select Galaxy A-series phones such as Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A73 are also eligible to get the new treatment.
On the other hand, according to Samsung’s previous software update policy, its flagship devices get four years of software updates, which has been done for the Galaxy S9 series. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S10 is also not eligible for the new software update policy.
Also, the biggest update the phone can download is the Android 10 OS update. Meanwhile, its latest security is March 2022 patch. On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S10 is running One UI 4.1 update based on Android 12, which is its biggest OS update.
