Samsung Won’t Roll Out Security Updates For Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Anymore

A list showing Samsung S Series devices scheduled for monthly security updates have failed to include the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge which means that they won’t be receiving Android updates henceforth.

As earlier noted by Droid-Life, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy S6 Active were also missing from the list for almost 24 Hours before being re-added to the models that will continue receiving Samsung Android security updates. It is good to know that the S6 Edge+ and Galaxy S6 Active are not up to three years since its launch and might have been the reason why they were added back unlike the Galaxy S6 which was unveiled in April 2015 before bringing other S Series.

Here are the current models for monthly security updates as posted on Samsungmobile:

  • Galaxy S series (S9, S9+, S8, S8+, S8 Active, S7, S7 edge, S7 Active, S6 edge+, S6 Active)
  • Galaxy Note series (Note 8, Note 5)
  • Galaxy A series (A5 (2016), A5 (2017), A8 (2018))

The list above does not contain all the devices scheduled for updates, go to Samsung’s security website to see more.

Now that Samsung has stopped pushing security updates to Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, maybe it’s time those who use them get another device probably Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+. Check out their specs.
