During yesterday’s Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2020 virtual event, the tech giant announced the Note 20 series among other new devices including the Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Tab S7+, Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Buds Live, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
One major announcement was also made at the online launch.
Samsung promised to “support three generations of Android updates” for Galaxy phones beginning with the Galaxy Note 20 series whose pre-orders in Kenya begin next week.
This means that the Note 20 series will get Android 11 when it goes live next month, Android 12 next year and Android 13 in 2022.
It’s worth noting that Samsung used generation instead of years to remove ambiguity.
The Galaxy devices in the update list include the S, A, N and Z Series – this includes upcoming Galaxy S series, Galaxy A series and Note series.
This means that the Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, Note 10, Note 10+, S20, S20+, S20 Ultra get another life just like the Note 20 series.
The Note 20 series come with Android 10 and OneUI 2.5
In the Z series, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, the Z Flip and last year’s Galaxy Fold get Android 11 when it goes live next month, Android 12 next year and Android 13 in 2022.
Samsung has already opened OneUI 3.1 developer beta with Android 11 for the S20 series.
2019 Galaxy devices will get updates until Android 12.
Galaxy A series including the A71 5G, A71, A51 5G, A51, A90 5G and upcoming A series devices.
Samsung Galaxy Tablets also slated in this new program include the Tab S7+ 5G, Tab S7+, Tab S7 5G, Tab S7 5G, Tab S6 5G, Tab S6 5G, Tab S6, Tab S6 Lite and upcoming Tab S series.
Hopefully, these updates will be timely.
