Samsung has fulfilled the promise it did in August 2020 Unpacked by rolling out the Android 13 update to Galaxy Note 20 and S20 series. However, Samsung should consider delivering one more major OS upgrade for Galaxy Note 20 and S20 series.

Since the Galaxy Note 20 and S20 series debuted with Android 10, the recently released Android 13 is the third major OS upgrade for the devices, however, Samsung should give Android 14 as well. The Note 20 and S20 series are still capable of running tasks and multitasking, thanks to the powerful chipsets and hardware.

The company is promising up to 4 major OS upgrades for mid-range phones including the Galaxy A73 and Galaxy A53, which makes flagship smartphone owners sad as they paid premium price for this phone. Here, the policy appears to have biased as there’s a premium-like treatment to half-priced mid-rangers.

2019’s Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series lineups already ended up their major Android upgrade support last year, while, affordable variants; Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite are receiving the Android 13 update. The reason is the pre-loaded operating system, which fired S10 and Note 10 flagships from Android 13 eligibility.

Lawmakers of the European Union also want smartphone vendors to give at least 3 major OS and 5 years of software updates so people can keep phones longer. Samsung surpasses the EU’s proposal, but only for premium and select mid-range devices released in and after 2021 and 2022, respectively.

Following its multi-chipset strategy, Samsung shipped the Galaxy Note 20 and S20 series with Exynos 990 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+, 865 5G chipsets, in the Global market and the US, respectively. Both of these chipsets are manufactured by cutting-edge 7nm process technology, which was the most premium at that time.

In addition to the hardware, the Galaxy Note 20, and Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra were shipped with the Android 10 operating system out of the box. In August 2020, Samsung announced that it will deliver three major OS upgrades to flagship devices released pre-loaded with Android 9, which included the Galaxy Note 20 and S20 as well.

Do you agree with one more major OS upgrade demand for Galaxy Note 20 and S20 series ?

It would be good if S20 and N20 gets Andorid 14 as I can continue my S20+ 1 more year

But entire Samsung even it's security doesn't want to remember any of 2020 devices

They will just close all 2020 S series after pushing UI 5.1 and move it to quarter security schedule

Not 100% there is a issue in S20 FE 5G part

In India it came with A11 so as said A14 is last

But S20FE 5G in rest of the world came with A10 and ends by A13

Not sure if in India alone they r gonna give that 1 year extra update or skip or for all
