List of 7 Samsung Smartphones that WhatsApp Will No Longer Support

The app is ending support for nearly seven Samsung smartphones on 31st December, which means that after this date, users of the below-mentioned Samsung devices will no longer get updates – including new features and security updates – from WhatsApp, and eventually, the service will stop working for them in 2023.
