Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8 + will not receive any more updates in the future – owners must keep up with the current state of their software if they plan to continue using theirs. As noted by DroidLife, the old master devices are no longer included in the list of models that are currently receiving security updates. For now, the Galaxy S8 Active and S8 Lite are still on the list, but it’s worth noting that they were released months later by the major flagship S8 phones.
Not surprisingly, Samsung has decided to stop releasing device updates. They were a hit when they first came out and provided Samsung with the best pre-order numbers they had ever seen at the time. However, more than four years have passed since the launch of the phones ̵
At the moment, Samsung’s oldest flagships, which still receive monthly security updates, are the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy S9 and S9 + are on a quarterly security update schedule and are likely to receive updates for another year before the tech giant stops supporting them.
