All the Galaxy Enterprise Edition devices are now available for purchase from the Samsung UK website (opens in new tab). Samsung says more Galaxy Enterprise Edition devices will be available "throughout the year."
Samsung will be rolling out monthly security updates for the Galaxy S and Note Enterprise Edition devices for three years. In the fourth year, the devices will only receive quarterly updates. The Galaxy A series and XCover 4, on the other hand, will receive quarterly updates for the full four year term.
Aside from the promise of regular firmware updates for up to 4 years, these devices come with a few other unique features as well. With Knox Configure, enterprise users will have greater control over settings, restrictions, app, and other mobile content, allowing businesses to configure them remotely. Businesses will also be able update the OS on these devices remotely with Enterprise Firmware-over-the-air (E-FOTA).
Galaxy Enterprise Edition devices come with 3 years of enhanced service maintenance, including next business day responses. Since data security is critical to most businesses, the devices are protected by Samsung Knox, which is the company's defense-grade security platform.
