When consumers get their hands on a Galaxy Note 9 after this month, they’ll notice something really unsatisfactory about a new flagship: It doesn’t launch with a latest chronicle of Android. It’s a sad, informed fact of Android ownership.
Earlier this week, Google rolled out a final chronicle of Android Pie, that Pixel owners can download today. Even owners of a Essential Phone already have entrance to Google’s latest software, giving Android users everywhere wish that a fragmentation problem is dwindling.
Unfortunately, Samsung wasn’t means to qualification a program around Google’s latest chronicle of Android in time for a Note 9’s launch. Even worse, it isn’t transparent when Samsung intends on pulling out an refurbish to a users.
The fact that such an costly and high-end device is rising with aged program is impossibly disappointing. It also isn’t surprising, deliberation only how fragmented a Android marketplace is. If we demeanour during a Note 8 from final year, a conditions becomes even some-more grim.
When a Note 8 was announced in Aug of final year, it featured Android 7.1.1; a device didn’t get updated to Android 8 until Mar of a following year—that’s a 6 month gap. We unequivocally wish Note 9 users don’t have to wait that long.
Samsung was decorous about a subject of program during a new press lecture for a Note 9. Hopefully, a association has some-more to share earlier rather than later, differently a Pixel 3 and a large notch starts to demeanour a lot better.
