Samsung Electronics reinforced its commitment to offer the best mobile experience possible for Galaxy users by supporting three generations of Android operating system (OS) upgrades on millions of Galaxy devices.
On this occasion, Janghyun Yoon, Senior Vice President, Head of Software Platform Team, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics, said, “Samsung is committed to supporting our users to fully enjoy the latest mobile experiences while they are using Galaxy devices. As people hold onto their devices for longer, we are working to bring secure protection and exciting new features to the devices already in their hands. By supporting up to three generations of Android OS upgrades, we are extending the lifecycle of our Galaxy products and making a promise that we will provide a simple and secure mobile experience that takes advantage of the latest innovations as soon as they are available.”
