This 2015 Android smartphone has already received the latest update

It seems unthinkable that an Android smartphone receives updates for more than 7 years. But that’s what happened with the Fairphone 2, a smartphone officially unveiled in December 2015.

In the last few hours, the brand revealed on the social network Twitter that the team has just received the latest security update. Which means this one has had over 7 years of updates in total.

Fairphone 2 launched in 2015 with Android 5 Lollipop

To get an idea of ​​the longevity of the device, the Fairphone 2 originally launched in 2015 with Android 5 Lollipop. And in the field of major updates, Android has been updated to Android 10.

But that didn’t stop the brand from continuing to release minor updates and security patches. It must be borne in mind that the equipment came to the market equipped with the Snapdragon 801.

Considering that Qualcomm stopped supporting this processor in 2016, Fairphone will have had a difficult time continuing to support the team.

For those who bought the Fairphone in 2015 and still have the equipment to date, now will be the time to change equipment. It is that from the month of May this will be vulnerable to possible threats.

However, its users may continue to rely on hardware support as long as the company has a stock of parts. Long live an Android device that will surely go down in history.
