Samsung Is Bringing Android Pie To New Devices
Android P, the 16th version of the Android Operating System, was first announced last year, in March. The official release took place four months later, on July 25 when the name of the version was divulged: Android Pie. Ever since then, all of the major Android-powered smartphone manufacturers have been trying to get their hands on the new OS version, in order to bring their users all of the new features and benefits, like adaptive battery, dark mode, adaptive brightness, app timer and many more.
Android Pie Update Coming To New Devices
Samsung is one of the companies that tried their hardest to bring the update to as many of their devices as possible, which they succeeded up to a limited number. More recently, some of the company’s less expensive phones, the Galaxy J4+ and Galaxy J6+, have been updated to Pie, in a number of countries (Vietnam, Thailand and Ukraine for J4+, and Germany, Iraq and India for J6+). Along with the updates, both smartphones received the April 2019 security patch.
Because of Samsung’s new One UI interface, Android Pie delivers a brand-new feel to Galaxy devices, including functionality improvements.
The fact that Samsung launched the Android update to multiple markets came as a surprise. Users around the world hope this will become the norm, as Samsung has been working to improve their software updating habits.
