August 2020 is the release month of the latest Samsung Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra presentation conference was held, very precisely, on August 5. It has therefore been more than two years since the range has been renewed and it could be that the last smartphone of this iconic range will become obsolete very soon.
The Galaxy Note 20 will receive the Android 13 update
On the day of the smartphone announcement, Samsung announced that its smartphones will now have three major updates. It’s still very little, especially compared to the iPhone, but it’s a step forward compared to the catastrophic management of updates at the Korean manufacturer in the past.
The Galaxy Note 20s were shipped with Android 10. So, if we go by what Samsung promises, Android 13 will be the last update for this smartphone.
No Android 14, but maybe OneUI 5.1
As for future updates, Samsung might surprise us and deliver Android 14 for the Galaxy Note 20. However, the likelihood of that happening is very low.
So, the last update we expect to see for this smartphone is OneUI 5.1, which will be released alongside the upcoming Galaxy S23s. Samsung may also release OneUI 5.1.1, which will accompany the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, in the second half of 2023.
Finally, for those who would keep using the smartphone a little longer, security updates will obviously be available.
As for those who wish to obtain a smartphone in the format of the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy S22 Ultra offers an almost identical chassis, as well as a stylus.
