Samsung will provide monthly security updates to these Nine Galaxy Devices

October 19, 2015

Samsung had earlier on in the month made a commitment to provide monthly over the air security updates to deal with security threats affecting its devices.

The South Korean Tech Giant has now unveiled a dedicated website as a follow up to that announcement. The website, (security.samsungmobile.com) will detail the security updates available and the devices supported.

Whereas, it is impressive that Samsung has made such a commitment despite its infamous slow pace of releasing updates, the sad part is that only a handful of Samsung devices will be receiving the security updates.

The list includes;

  • Galaxy S5
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 edge
  • Galaxy S6 edge+
  • Galaxy Note 4
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy Tab S
  • Galaxy Tab S2

The list is largely composed of some of Samsung’s latest flagship devices and excludes even the recently launched mid-range smartphones.

It will be interesting to see if Samsung will be able to expand the list to include more of its smartphones.
