Samsung promises users of unlocked units in the US support for regular software updates
Samsung, as compared to other OEMs, have been impressive in the way they handle the monthly security update for their units in the market and needless to say, they are on top of the pack here. Even though some of those updates might end up hitting units late, it is better late than never, they say.
However, there has been an odd mode of these updates rolling out to unlocked units in the US, and the carrier-versions almost always get the best treatment. For example, while the carrier versions of the Galaxy S7 flagships have been getting steady updates, the unlocked units are still on the December security patch, and don’t even know what the Nougat feels like yet.
Samsung Mobile has however confirmed that the issue behind the unlocked units being eligible for quarterly updates only has been fixed, and the would now be giving regular software support to unlocked units in the region too.
This is a ton of good news for those that choose to buy an unlocked phone, and if the trend in other markets is to be followed, they would be getting updates before any other person in no time.
