At the end of March 2018, specialized mobile service providers and retailers in Slovenia began selling new Samsung smartphones Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 +. The newcomers have impressed the users of mobile services mainly in terms of devices. These come with a 14.7 cm (5.8-inch) or 15.7 cm (6.2-inch) diagonal screen, four (Galaxy S9) or six (Galaxy S9+) system memory, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or Samsung Exynos processor for select markets and 64GB of built-in memory.
However, since the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones have been on the market for more than four years, Samsung has decided to cancel software updates or the Android mobile operating system and related software. Practically speaking, this means that users will no longer receive security updates and therefore will be exposed to security risks. Therefore, it is recommended that owners of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + (Plus) smartphones look for a new device.
It is worth noting that the oldest high-end smartphone from Samsung, which still receives monthly updates, is the Galaxy S10. They only receive updates once every three months or four times a year. This means that users of these smartphones will be exposed to increased security risks for a short time. Over time, Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones will continue to receive security updates, but only twice a year. This means that they will receive two security updates a year before Samsung refuses to support them. Then it’s time to buy a new device.
