Really Old Device? Don't Expect Support to End
If your device fails to secure an Android 11 upgrade, don't expect software support to end.
Samsung might cut major updates off at the two-year mark, but older devices will continue to get bug fixes and security patches.
The company's put together a list of Galaxy devices getting monthly and quarterly security updates. Here’s how it breaks down right now:
Current Models for Monthly Security Updates
Current Models for Quarterly Security Updates
Current Models for Other Regular Security Updates
If you own one of these devices and you don't get Android 11, there's a good chance you'll still get monthly or quarterly security updates from Samsung and your carrier.

Don't Wait for a Small Display
If you want a small screen, don't wait around for Samsung's new flagships.
Unless Samsung takes things in a completely different direction, you can expect the Galaxy S21 models to come with large displays.
It's clear that Samsung's interested in making screens bigger, not smaller, so don't expect the company to suddenly shrink things down.
If you want something smaller you're going to want to look elsewhere. Fortunately, there are a bunch of excellent small screen Android phones available right now.
