Meet the mannequin new boss, identical as a end result of the previous boss

Smartphone makers have come an prolonged, good distance of their method to dealing with Android updates, and we have seen firms like Samsung actually rise to some extent the place they’re aggressive with Google when it includes hurry and launch cadence. however for all of the credit rating Samsung’s replace program is due, there’s nonetheless been one apparent blind spot: the lack of assist for seamless A/B updates. final fall, we found ourselves hopeful that the Galaxy S23 sequence would possibly buck the development and at final embrace seamless updates, however sadly, we’re ready to now affirm that will not be the case.


the thought behind seamless assist is to attenuate your downtime when updating your telephone. rather than attending to sit down by way of a prolonged reboot and set up course of, a telephone with seamless updates can set up its computer software to a second partition whereas you proceed to make the most of the precept one. Then, when the whole lot’s ready, you may boot to the mannequin new one with little disruption.

As Google was placing the ending touches on Android thirteen final yr, Mishaal Rahman noticed that the agency was planning to mandate assist for digital A/B partitions. These digital partitions had emerged as a end result of the optimum different to method seamless updates, whereas protecting storage requirements down. And if Samsung needed to assist digital A/B partitions, it sure felt probably that its telephones would equally assist seamless updates.

Alas, which will not be the case. Having gotten our arms on the mannequin new Galaxy S23 extremely, we ran the telephone by way of the Treble knowledge computer software, and might affirm that Samsung will not be turning over a mannequin new leaf — the telephone as quickly as as quickly as extra does not assist seamless updates. whereas that is faraway from actually enticing, giving Samsung’s established reluctance to make this modification (to not level out its snug relationship with Google that in all likelihood spares it further stress), it is nonetheless irritating.

maybe subsequent yr will lastly be the one to ditch 128GB and go away Samsung with even fewer excuses for why it will not play good with seamless updates.
