Samsung confirms Galaxy A6 and A6+ will receive quarterly security updates
Samsung currently reserves the monthly security patch privilege for its flagship Galaxy S and Galaxy Note devices, although certain popular mid-range devices such as the Galaxy A5 (2016), Galaxy A5 (2017), and the Galaxy A8 (2018) also receive frequent updates. When it comes to the brand’s budget devices or less popular options, however, these receive security patches every three months, and it appears the recently-announced Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ will be joining this group of smartphones.
On a more positive note, Samsung’s latest devices launched with Android 8.0 Oreo straight out of the box, so they will likely see an update to Android P sometime early year. Also, if sales are impressive enough, the South Korean giant may even opt to update them to Android Q when released in 2019. Presently, however, Samsung is yet to confirm its major update plans for the smartphones.
