HTC Terms Monthly Security Updates As 'unrealistic'

By 01:13 Wed, 28 Jul 2021 Comments

Nearly a couple of months after companies like Google, Samsung, and LG assumed they will release monthly security updates for their Android devices, HTC has assumed that the company can't promise the same as it is unrealistic.

In a tweet sent out this past weekdiscontinue (see above), HTC America President Jason Mackenzie assumed that while the Taiwanese company will try to deliver regular updates, guaranteeing an update each month is not possible as it also requires carrier approval.

If you aren't already aware, the promise from Google, Samsung, and LG came in the wake of a nasty Android vulnerability dubbed Stagefright, which affected versions 2.2 and newer of the OS. Recently, a recent Stagefcorrect vulnerability has also been discovered.
