Sadly, conjunction a Galaxy S8 nor a Galaxy Note 8 are anywhere on that list. Both were launched in 2019 and, by Samsung’s common counting system, have already reached their two-year lifetime. And nonetheless both phones did burst from Android 7 Nougat to Android 9 Pie, some will positively indicate out that a phones should have come out with Android 8.0 Oreo out of a box in a initial place.
That said, Samsung’s list is flattering long, that will do a picture good if it can indeed lift all of it off. Here are a phones and their months in a nutshell:
