Samsung closes the support of its high-end 2015, goodbye Galaxy S6!

It was something we expected, and that is three years of support are not usual in the most important Android phones of the big firms in the industry. And yet, this news does not stop being always bad news

Already it is official that the Samsung Galaxy S6 range is dismissed , and is that the South Korean giant has just announced through the site Samsung Mobile Security , a website where Samsung publishes all its terminals that maintain the official security support, and that has just been updated to receive the Samsung Galaxy S9 .

In the lists are no longer the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge + and Galaxy S6 Active , the four models of the Galaxy S6 range released in April 2015, which fall as much of the monthly updates as of the quarterly ones just in the month in which they are three years old of its launch. Not bad for Samsung, which has fulfilled even above the two years usually offered by most manufacturers of the Android platform.

Thus, the Galaxy S6 are forever in Android 7 Nougat without the possibility of testing Oreo, at least not officially, and with two important updates of the operating system having been born with Android Lollipop installed in your guts. The last security patch dates from February 2018, and that will be the last for the four terminals of the Galaxy S6 range.

This is how the pie of Samsung updates is distributed

The Korean giant has a large range of Android smartphones, although its catalog has really decreased since the beginning of Google’s mobile platform , when following all the Samsung releases was an almost impossible mission.

Nowadays the task is simpler, and also Samsung itself has wanted to order its ranges so that all users know when and how will they receive updates in the coming months . So that, we present you the roadmap from Samsung with the updates of their devices in this financial year 2018:

All Samsung Galaxy devices that will be updated monthly

  • Galaxy S (S9, S9 +, S8, S8 +, Active S8, S7 edge, S7 Active)
  • Galaxy Note (Note 8, Note 5)
  • Galaxy A (A5 (2016), A5 (2017), A8 (2018))

Samsung models that will receive quarterly security updates

  • Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A7 (2017)
  • Galaxy J1 Mini, Galaxy J1 Mini Prime
  • Galaxy J2 (2016), Galaxy J5 (2016), Galaxy J7 (2016)
  • Galaxy J3 Pro, Galaxy J3 Pop, Galaxy J7 Pop
  • Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017), Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy J7 Neo
  • Galaxy A8 + (2018), Galaxy J2 (2018)
  • Galaxy Tab S2 L Refresh, Galaxy Tab S2 S Refresh
  • Galaxy Tab S3 9.7, Galaxy Tab Active2, Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2016)
  • Note FE

As you have seen, it is about practically all Android devices that Samsung has released from 2016 onwards , leaving mostly monthly updates for the high-end smartphones.

The most economical cutting tablets and phones will have to settle for a security review every quarter , which on the other hand is also not bad if we spent little money on a phone and we liked the Samsung experience. _One bad news that has become another not so bad …
