In its official security update, Samsung has officially announced that it will end support for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Last year, these smartphones were switched to receiving quarterly security patches, and now it has been decided to completely stop distributing security patches for them.
Interestingly, the Galaxy S8 Active is not affected by this rule, it will still receive security updates on a quarterly basis. Support for the Galaxy S8 Lite continues.
