A new way to update your Android

For the average user Android updates is something ephemeral that exists somewhere out of reach. Despite the fact that Google publishes a monthly security patches to address vulnerabilities in proprietary OS, most manufacturers either ignore them altogether or release updates-blanks. Therefore, most users does not matter nor the number of assemblies contained in them neither fixes nor even a model of their distribution. But not only Google.

Apparently, the search giant devised a change model to propagate updates to Android, placing this responsibility on Google Play. References to relevant instrumentation contained in the actual assembling catalogue number 14.5.52. Their analysis showed that they describe the process of downloading new versions of the operating system, almost exactly repeating the scenario in which there are smartphones line Google Pixel at the time of the update.

What can give such a reshuffle? We are with you — almost nothing, since Google is not content but only modifies the form. The search giant is not trying to do something to solve the problem of fragmentation of Android. It only facilitates the task of distributing updates, which, however, will remain inaccessible to the vast majority of users, forced for months to use smartphones on the same OS version that has been out of the box.

Of course, this does not affect smartphone users line Google Pixel, which meant a new distribution model updates. They, in contrast to the devices of competing brands will be able to download updates from Google Play. Most likely, this is how Google plans to increase attendance, brand directory, turning it from the app store, which gradually cease to be interested in users in the system an indispensable tool.

Interesting novelty from Samsung

Last week during the event, A Galaxy Event, Samsung presented a smartphone Galaxy A80. The device is the most advanced representative of the range Galaxy A, which is traditionally considered cheap, but the appearance and technical specifications enable you to find it even more advanced than the basic model Galaxy S10, and compete with the top Galaxy S10+ when you expect a more affordable price.

While this is a unique feature that is not available even the flagship devices Galaxy S the tenth generation. To them she gets closer to may with the release of the corresponding update.

In spite of the technological Galaxy A80, it is hardly a beautiful device. Fullscreen design almost deprived him of the delights which you can use to catch the eye. The same can be said about the back of the smartphone, completely devoid of individuality. But everything changes when the camera leaves the top of the phone, guiding your lens wherever you need it. Perhaps even any modern camera didn’t look so contradictory.
