It has been a common practice that Android phones don’t receive more than two years of major software updates. But that’s about to change, probably. According to T-Mobile support pages, Samsung could be planning an Oreo update for its 2015 flagships.
Support pages for the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5 on T-Mobile website indicate that Oreo updates for the said phones are in development, while each page also displays the below message, “T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update.”
It’d be very interesting to see if Oreo makes its way to Samsung’s 2015 flagships. Almost every Android phone manufacturer ends the support after two years of support, which is nothing in comparison to the 3-5 year Apple support for the iPhones.
