Probably, it is silly to be honest. Even Nokia is slowing down updates on it's older flagships like my 8, they had a two year update plan.So artificially segmenting their old and new, beyond just hardware? Whatever the reason might be, that's what I see as the "Apple tax" benefit I get with my devices.
Just found a possible reason, apparently Google requires a million dollars per version of Android to the OEMs.
