At Samsung's Unpacked event on February 9, the manufacturer will finally show the new Galaxy series! Besides the Galaxy S22 models, we will probably also get to see the Galaxy Tab S8. A new leak about Samsung's update policy has now surfaced on Twitter. The post reveals the period in which the new devices are supposed to receive updates.


  • A new leak about Samsung's update plan has surfaced.
  • Besides the S22 and the Tab S8, other devices are also mentioned in the post.
  • Unpacked event will be held in a few hours.

Shortly before one of the biggest Samsung events of the year, a new leak reached us today. BDTech published a post on Twitter that shows the update plan for the upcoming Galaxy devices. Thus, the Galaxy Galaxy S22, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 FE smartphones and the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 phones as well as the Galaxy Tab S8 are said to be secured for the next few years. More precisely: if the leak is confirmed, the devices will get new security updates and four major Android updates for a total of five years.

The leaker cites information from Evleaks, another well-known leaker, as the source. He recently leaked press material about the new Galaxy models. The disclaimer that BDTech published can also be seen there. All models of the smartphones listed above and the Galaxy Tab S8 are included in the disclaimer and should be secured for the next few years.

Unpacked event starts soon

We are only a few hours away from Samsung holding one of the biggest events of the year. But not only the unveiling of the Galaxy S22 should cause excitement, since the Exynos 2200 processor is used in the European models for the first time, among other things. Leaks of the new Galaxy Tab S8 also caused a stir in the run-up. With the S8 Ultra, Samsung is likely to present a tablet that not only has a large screen, but also uses a notch for the first time.

If you have enough time, you can follow the event live on Samsung's website or YouTube. However, if you don't have time, you should keep an eye on the NextPit homepage. So, it's best to drop by if you want to discuss all the important innovations of the Samsung ecosystem with the other users or simply marvel at the new devices. We summarize everything important for you on our big overview page of the Galaxy S22:
