Samsung Galaxy A51, one of the more popular smartphones in the company’s mid-range segment, will now only receive two updates per year instead of four, as per Samsung’s website. Most Samsung phones, including its A-series devices, are promised to receive three Android OS upgrades and four years of security updates. The phone, which is a little over two years old and has only received one of three Android OS upgrades, has now been demoted to receive biannual security updates from quarterly earlier. Samsung Galaxy A51 had last received an update in February 2022. Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, on the other hand, is still promised to get quarterly security updates.
Samsung usually promises to provide its smartphones with four years of security updates. These updates are released on a monthly, quarterly, or biannual basis depending on the phone. The Galaxy A51 previously got quarterly updates, meaning that the smartphone used to get a new update once every three months, which has now been changed to biannually as per Samsung’s Dutch website, first spotted by GSMArena.
