Samsung ends the life of smartphones Galaxy S8

Official updates of the Android operating system for the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone ended in April 2017 and made available on the market in April of the same year. You will also stop receiving periodic security updates (patches).

Four years after being revealed, the Samsung Galaxy S8 reaches the end of its life in the eyes of the manufacturer. This is one of the most important smartphones in Samsung’s history, deeply marking its course of action, design philosophy and approach to the market.

The excellent Galaxy S8 no longer receive updates from Samsung

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Galaxy S8 arrived in two sizes, in addition to the standard version we also had the Plus model of larger dimensions. It was also the first Samsung smartphone to adopt the general format that would define this range of top smartphones up to the Galaxy S20.

Thus, it is with due reverence that we give notice of the end of official support not only for the Galaxy S8, but also the Galaxy S8 +, failing both to receive further updates from Samsung itself. There are, however, third-party solutions that can be explored.

In particular, the LineageOS project continues to support both phones, developing specific versions for each of these models. For users who want to continue to enjoy software updates this is one of the best options to follow.

It was one of the models with extended support by Samsung

Although the recent development is not exactly positive, it was not at all a surprise. Note that, as a rule, smartphones are entitled to two major updates to the operating system – corresponding to about two years of support.

As far as it is concerned, the Galaxy S8 has received a total of four years of updates, although during the last year it has stayed with security updates, patches with corrections. It was therefore an exception to the two-year update rule.

For both Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + the latest update comes in the form of patch April 2021 with the respective security fixes for the system.

A good indicator within Samsung

The extended support to which he was entitled begins to be felt in newer models by the leading manufacturer in the market, something extremely positive. It should be noted that this benefit ends up extending the useful life of our smartphones and, alternatively, protecting our investment and safety of use.

There is no doubt in this field. Samsung is one of the manufacturers that has made the most efforts to extend support and provide updates for its equipment, addressing one of its failures in the past.

Finally, there is a note to be made to the Galaxy S8 Lite and Galaxy S8 Active models that will continue to receive security updates. Furthermore, we hope that this good example will be “the new normal” for the leading brand in the market.

The consumer is the most benefited by a manufacturer that delivers a software support so broad compared to the average standard in this market.
