The company's put together a list of Galaxy devices getting monthly and quarterly security updates. Here’s how it breaks down right now:

    I have 3 devices with Beta 3. Pixel (Gen 1), Essential, and OnePlus 6T. The 6T has tons of problems that the other 2 devices do not exhibit. Fingerprint reader issues, app crashes and problems displaying imported text messages.
