Samsung has gone in a few years from being a company with a highly criticized interface to become one of the manufacturers that strives the most in polishing its software. And it’s not that recently there bet on Android Go , but it has one of the fastest browsers and complete and for some time implements KNOX in their devices, their own security suite integrated into the system. Following this trend, the manufacturer has just announced quarterly security updates for the Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A Plus , demonstrating its commitment to users.

And is that it is always appreciated that two smartphones that are not high-end or even medium / premium, be careful in terms of security, since the security of our data is something that should not understand prices.

Because not only the S series is important

It can not be denied that the most powerful devices of the company, and those that generate the most benefits, are usually the most spoiled by the manufacturers when it comes to receiving updates and optimizations.

In the case of Samsung, all Galaxy S receive monthly updates , as well as other mid-range devices that are very popular and that demand more attention. Among the latter would be the Galaxy A5 (2016) , Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy A8 (2018), 3 of the best-selling terminals in 2018 and the Galaxy A5 2017 being the most sold in Spain.

Apart from the quarterly security updates for the Galaxy A6, we must bear in mind that these two models, with a clear focus on the photographic aspect, have reached the market with Oreo factory , so it’s very logical to think that they will receive Android P throughout the year or early 2019, something that without a doubt, would be an added incentive for your purchase.

As a reminder, leave here the characteristics of these two smartphones:
