Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, Galaxy Note 8 removed from monthly security update list
But there’s some good news as well. Samsung has added two new products in the upgrade rollout list as well.
The more device you sell, more you have to maintain them over time. Samsung, like others, has been doing same since years for its handsets by issues regular updates. But at some point, products do reach their end of life and the company has to push it out from the update list. Galaxy Note 8, the flagship smartphone of 2018 is now moving out of the list. This means users of this product will no longer receive monthly security patches.
But on the brighter part, it will still be updated on a quarterly basis. The second phone moving out from the list is the Galaxy J7 Prime, which came out almost 5 years ago around the same time as the original Google Pixel.
But there's some good news as well. Samsung has added two new products in the upgrade rollout list as well. The first is recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) while the other one is Galaxy Tab Active3.
