On the official Samsung Mobile Security website, the company has just updated its schedule of which of its Android smartphones and tablets receive monthly security updates, which updates will be received quarterly and which & # 39; regular & # 39; will receive updates. The brand new line-up of Samsung Galaxy S10 devices is now on the monthly list, as it was first noticed Android police.
That means, apparently, that owners of Samsung Galaxy S10 devices can expect at least one security update every month. However, today is April Fool & # 39; s Day.
Assuming that this is not just a joke, this would not be the first time that Samsung is sticking to monthly security updates for some of its devices and then not continuing with that promise. For example, almost every American variant of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus was locked in for more than three months on the February 2018 security patch.
Even when Samsung promises a monthly security firm, this is often for specific devices in specific locations, with many of the American variants getting the updates later. However, Samsung points to a number of these problems that are related to carrier-related.
For what it's worth, the Samsung Galaxy S10 family has received the most recent security patch from March 2019. So Samsung starts with OK.
In related news, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are downgraded to the quarterly update schedule (the Galaxy S7 Active still receives monthly updates). Many of Samsung's new tablets – including the just-released Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 – are also on the quarterly update list.
Time will tell if Samsung Galaxy S10 owners receive timely updates that Samsung promises.
