One thing that every smartphone user looks forward to is the next update. iPhone users get to enjoy a ton of major iOS updates on the same iPhone for years but it is not the same with Android users. Android users usually get a maximum of 2 years of Android update support from the company. Samsung is about to change that for its users. In terms of thinking, how to provide more value to the customers, Samsung has figured out a good way by extending the number of years to provide major updates to its smartphones. In the launch event of Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series, the tech giant hinted that its smartphones will now get 3 major updates instead of two. Samsung has confirmed this further through its blogpost.
