Samsung has now released the official list of phones that will enjoy its new policy of providing three major OS updates. The usual suspects are there, along with the Galaxy A51, Galaxy A71, and Galaxy A90 as hypothesized. The A50 and A70 miss out, sadly.

A few weeks ago, Samsung officially confirmed that it would start providing three OS updates to its flagship phones, starting with the Galaxy S10 series. Reports then surfaced that the company's Galaxy A-series would also enjoy similar perks. Those reports have proven true now, as Samsung has officially released the list of devices that will get three OS updates.

The list is as follows:

It's important to note that all variants of the phones—4G and 5G models—listed above will get the promised three OS updates. Upcoming phones in the Galaxy S series, Galaxy Note series, Galaxy Z series, and Galaxy Tab series will all get three OS updates. However, not all future Galaxy A series devices will get that privilege; we expect only the Galaxy A52, Galaxy A72, and upwards to be part of this new policy. Sorry, Galaxy A31 and A41 owners.

Sadly, for the Galaxy A series, only the current generation of phones make the cut. Ergo, the A51, A71, and A90. The A50 and A70 don't. That's a shame, but it makes sense from a business perspective.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
