Unlocked Samsung Galaxy devices in the US to get monthly updates from now on
Unlocked, carrier-free Android devices usually do not receive the vital security patches on time, and even Samsung Galaxy tablets and handsets have been affected by such issues. Fortunately, it looks like these times have come to an end for the unlocked Galaxy devices in the US.
The Samsung Mobile Security team recently revealed that monthly updates are coming soon to unlocked Galaxy devices in the US. This is the essential part of the email message received by more users who asked them about the updates for the unlocked Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the US - "Due to various circumstances, we have been releasing security updates for unlocked (open) Galaxy devices in the U.S. on a quarterly basis. However, we have now resolved the challenges; and we are committed to releasing security updates for those devices on a monthly basis."
The email also reveals that the March security update is coming soon. Although the message did not mention it, we will probably see Android Nougat coming with the new firmware as well.
