Google may have created Android, but customers wanting the best Android support should take a look at Samsung.
Samsung has just announced it is extending its Android support for Galaxy devices, promising a full four years of security updates after release. The company also touted Samsung Knox, its enterprise-grade security solution. Samsung claims to have the most secure embedded security chip, the Secure Element (eSE). The eSE helps protect the contents of the phone from physical attacks, should it be lost or stolen.
“At Samsung, our number one priority is offering the best and most secure mobile experience to our users, and we’re constantly optimizing the security of our products and services,” said Seungwon Shin, VP & Head of Security Team at Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “Mobile devices play such an important role in our lives, it’s only natural that we want to hold onto them longer. That’s why, thanks to the latest technology advancements, we’re committing to securing Galaxy devices for even longer, so that everything that should be kept protected stays protected.”
It’s hard to image that Google won’t match Samsung’s announcement. If it does, Samsung’s decision will end up benefiting customers of both companies, not just its own.
