Samsung’s upcoming Android 14 operating system has smartphone users eagerly awaiting its release. The Korean brand has officially announced the compatibility of their mobile phones with the new update, but not all devices will be receiving it.
Samsung has previously promised four years of Android updates for high-end phones and several mid-range devices. However, this policy does not apply to devices that are four years old.

More models are anticipated to be added to this list in the coming days.

If an update is available, you can proceed with the installation. If not, you can view the current version of your software and the date of the last update.
It’s important to note that in order to enjoy Android 14, your phone must have been released in 2021 or later. Stay tuned for updates on which models will be compatible with the new operating system.
