Samsung will get a foul rap for a torpid replace schedule of its Android smartphones and tablets, and never without purpose. Many of the flagship units from the corporate take their very own candy time to get updates, whereas mid-rangers and entry-level units typically wrestle to get any greater than the odd Android model replace, and that too after it’s already deprecated by a brand new model from Google.
Whereas the timetable could not get any quicker simply but, the South Korean shopper electronics big is now anticipated to roll out two Android updates to its much-maligned J-series units in an effort, probably, to raised compete with the likes of Xiaomi, who’s supporting its units with pretty common (if frustratingly late) updates even years after their launch.
Whereas Android Pie has already been out for weeks now, Samsung is seemingly engaged on an Oreo to replace for its 2-year-old Galaxy J7 (2017), reportedly making it the primary Galaxy J-series machine to obtain 2 main model updates. The machine was initially shipped with Android 6.zero Marshmallow out-of-the-box and has since been up to date to Android 7.zero Nougat.
The unique affirmation in regards to the Galaxy J7 (2016) receiving Android Oreo got here through Samsung’s Members app, which later made the Oreo replace schedule official. Curiously, although, whereas the itemizing initially stated that the machine will obtain the Oreo replace in March 2019, the corporate is now believed to have pushed again the replace schedule to November 2019, by which era, Oreo might be greater than two years previous!
It’s additionally value noting that by November 2019, Google could have already unveiled Android Q in all its glory, whereas most different producers could have lengthy completed rolling out Android Pie to their respective units. Given how lackadaisical Samsung has been with updates, SamMobile is even speculating that the corporation could not even really get round to updating the machine in any respect.
