Samsung has stopped supporting its flagship Galaxy Note 10 series smartphones, which were released in 2019, SamMobile portal reports.
The South Korean corporation considers the Galaxy Note 10 devices to be outdated and is not going to release updates for them, including security fixes.
The magazine notes that this could create risks for users who continue to use this series of phones, as flaws that appear in the operating system in the future will no longer be fixed. This means that these devices will no longer be safe to use.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ were introduced in August 2019 and run on Android 9. The last operating system version available for these models was Android 12. In January 2020, Samsung released the Galaxy Note 10 Lite smartphone, which will continue to receive updates for now.
SamMobile notes that Samsung's decision to end support for the Galaxy Note 10 is due to the fact that the corporation has focused its attention on other series of smartphones, such as the Galaxy S and Galaxy Z. The company promises that current models of flagship devices will receive up to four Android updates and up to five security fixes.
