Samsung has continued to impress with its regular security updates lately, but while flagships and newer phones tend to receive monthly fixes, many cheaper or older devices receive them less often. Samsung updated its security schedule this week, relegating some phones and tablets to less frequent support.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE has been added to the schedule, but it will only receive fixes quarterly despite being brand new. It’s not uncommon for Samsung to offer less support for tablets than phones, but it’s always disappointing to see a Tab S device overlooked when it’s only just released.
Other older devices have also been moved, and you can see all of the changes below:
Switched from quarterly to semi-annual
- Galaxy a20e
- Galaxy a60
- Galaxy a70
- Galaxy View2
- Galaxy F52 5G
- Galaxy tab a7 lite
- Galaxy Tab S7 FE
Like the Tab S7 FE, the A7 Lite is another newly launched tablet that begins its updating career in the quarterly installment.
