Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will be updated to Android Oreo in 2018. It is admirable that a cheap smartphone for active people from the beginning of 2017 will see new software. Is it worth buying?
Cheap smartphones are good for customers and manufacturers. Why? Because they are cheap (good for the buyer), and the manufacturer sells them a lot. However, there is a small problem with them – usually the update support ends with one large compilation (often we do not even get it). However, there are exceptions from this. One of them is Nokia, which consistently provides security patches and new software versions even for the cheapest models. Samsung does not want to be worse.
What smartphone for active?
Before I go to the actual update issue, however, a few words about resistant smartphones. Samsung as one of the few manufacturers consistently refreshes its models for active people. They have one more advantage – they are relatively cheap, because Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will buy currently for about PLN 780 . This is a small price for water resistance, increased protection against mechanical damage and quite a decent specification. Even now it is worth to buy it. Other such models can be found in our TOP-10 smartphones for the active.
Android updates on cheap smartphones
As you know, updating the system on Android smartphones is a big problem. In order not to look an example, Huawei P10 is in front of me. The flagship smartphone, which premiered in February 2017. Android Oreo debuted in August 2017. We have the beginning of March 2018, the premiere of Huawei P20 in a dozen or so days, and I still do not have a new version. If flagships do not get a software update, what about talking about cheap devices? I do not even have an idea what can be done with this problem. It is unlikely to change the approach of producers because it has not changed for years. Theoretically, the fewer models on offer, the less to update – Huawei has a lot of them. This smoothly takes us to the main character of this entry, i.e. to Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Xcover will get Android Oreo
As you can see, it can be done – Android Oreo will go on the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 . According to the source, it will not happen quickly. The enigmatic sign "later in 2018" can be misleading, because Oreo can go to Xcover 4, for example, after the release of Android P. However, you could say that it is better late than never. I like the fact that a cheap smartphone presented at the beginning of 2017 will get new software . There are several devices on the list – the Galaxy S8 update will take place in March, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. In the summer, Oreo will receive the seventh generations of the Galaxy and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017). Finally, a curiosity. Android Oreo is scheduled for a similar date for Galaxy Xcover, which is for the much newer Samsung Galaxy A8. On the smartphone for 2000 PLN is a very bad news. Could not even Koreans believe his success? Source: gsmarena
