Samsung stops supporting Galaxy S7 active and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016)

It’s the end of the road for the Samsung Galaxy S7 active and the old Galaxy Tab A 10.1 – at least if you want to continue receiving security updates. Still, both devices were released in 2016, which means they’ve received support for 4 years.

Those are not the only changes to Samsung’s update schedule, several devices were bumped down from the Quarterly Update list to “Other Regular Security Updates”. Here’s the list:

  • Galaxy S8 Lite
  • Galaxy A6+ (2018)
  • Galaxy J7 Top
  • Galaxy J6
  • Galaxy J4
  • Galaxy J3 Top

These were demoted to quarterly updates back in April 2019. At the time the S7 Active was still getting monthly security updates while the Tab A 10.1 was already in the “Other” column.
