The Galaxy Tab S2 is updated 5 years after its release

Among the Android brands available in Spain, Samsung is one of the most veteran and cutting-edge technology-level. However, as for updates you often have a policy that is sometimes difficult to understand.

The South Korean company does not usually stand out for the speed of Android updates, but it does have great consistency when it comes to security updates, which is not as good in the mid-range (where the bulk of its models enjoy quarterly updates) but which in the high-end has stood out for offering spectacular durability, with mobiles still receiving updates like the Galaxy S7, four and a half years after its introduction.

The Galaxy Tab S2 receives the October 2020 security patch, 5 years after its release

Today, the Galaxy S7 is a device that we have already talked about several times for its durability in terms of upgrades. However, it loses its place in the Samsung catalogue as the most durable product in terms of updates.

Interestingly, Samsung has begun deploying a new update for the Galaxy Tab S2, the high-end tablet that the company released in late 2015, a device that has recently turned 5 years old and positions itself as the oldest Samsung to receive a security update. This update has started to reach the U.S. model of carrier Verizon, but if you have this excellent tablet you may receive your security patch in the coming days.

Security updates are an undeniable aspect for a modern device, and it's often eye-catching that Android manufacturers don't comply. Samsung's action with teams with half a decade behind it, beyond praise for the South Korean company, should be a reminder to other brands (and models within Samsung itself).

Because yes, we may update old devices won't be used to sell more (which in the end is the purpose of manufacturers) but to make sure we make the right decision on our next purchase.
