Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
Officially unveiled on 29th March 2017, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were flagship phones. While samsung never promised anything more than 3 years of software update, it’s been 4 years and from the past 12 months they received updates on a quarterly basis.
Regardless of what your opinion might be on the discontinued software support, Samsung is well ahead of its league providing 3 years of monthly updates and then an entire year of quarterly updates gives Samsung the crown for Android Updates. Just to put things into perspective, even Google falls behind in providing software updates even though they are the ones making the software.
With that said, the glorious era of the Galaxy S8 lineup is officially over. So if you haven’t played around with custom ROMs as you might have feared voiding the warranty, now you can. And for team Samsung, the Galaxy S9 lineup is the oldest flagship still supported by Samsung till next year i.e. April 2022.
P.S. The Galaxy S9 lineup are already done receiving monthly updates and now will receive updates quarterly.
