Wow, just looked it up, good on Samsung! Apparently this was a recent change as they originally had planned for 3 years for the S7. (Is this limited to their flagship models only?)

Yeah, kinda weird that prices plummet when the device is no longer supported with security updates. Great time to buy.

I have a 4 years old Galaxy S7, latest update was september 2019. This thing launched in early 2016.

You guys are rightfully dunking on Samsung, but reading the specs for this phone, this might end up being a replacement for my current 7+ year old smartphone in a year or so.

Especially after it's been out for 6 months to a year and gets a price drop.

Removable battery? That's some serious innovation.
At only $500 dollars a pop I can't see how Samsung will recoup their R&D on removable battery tech. I fear their only hope is to patent the tech and hope to make it back in licensing fees.
