Samsung Entry-Level A Series Phones To Get 4 Years Of Updates

When Samsung announced that it would be extending its update cycle to FOUR major iterations of Android for its flagship devices, the tech world went crazy. After all, longevity was often the biggest knock you could have against an Android device. With other brands looking to follow suit, Samsung has gone even further by committing the same updates for its A series phones. FOUR YEARS of updates for an entry-level model? Why not?

Previously, Samsung and most other Android manufacturers were following a 2/3 year standard. That means 2 years of software updates, with 3 years of security updates to repel hackers. But things changed when the highest-level S and Note devices started getting 4/5 years which prompted other brands to do the same. It makes sense; after all, smartphones are now priced higher than ever before.

Well, rumors are swirling that the upcoming Galaxy A24 is getting the same treatment. This is an even more surprising fact (if confirmed to be true) because the device is far from the most expensive model in the lineup.

It’s equipped with a 4G-only Helio G99 chipset. While screen dimensions have not yet been announced, it should slot in nicely between the 6.5-inch Super AMOLED equipped Galaxy A34 and the lower 6.6-inch Galaxy A14 model. Why is the A14 larger than the A34? We don’t know either.

The device is also slated to come with a triple-camera rear setup: highlighted by a 50-megapixel main sensor with OIS, 5-megapixel ultrawide, and 2-megapixel macro lens. Also inside are a 5000mAh battery and either 6 or 8GB of RAM to be specced with its 128GB internal storage. Whether or not there’s microSD support remains to be confirmed.

More importantly, it’s shipped with Android 13 and OneUI 5.1 out of the box. This Samsung A Series phone is expected to get updates until Android 17 – which is just shocking. If that’s true, then this may be the cheapest phone to receive 4 years of support from Samsung. Or ever.
