Samsung Hong Kong’s latest models – the Galaxy C9 Pro offers you more than just a smartphone with a big screen. The device also has many other features that make it a value for money smartphone. Find out more about the Galaxy C9 Pro below.
Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro users can expect to receive a major software update in the form of the Android O. The update is likely to be officially available come August 2017.
Due to the huge number of people using Galaxy phones, Samsung finds it hard to guarantee consistent software updates to all the devices. Hence, the company will tend to prioritize its high-end and flagship models first before moving on to other devices.
Based on Neurogadget’s analysis of what Samsung has done so far in terms ofscheduling software updates for its handsets, it is easy to pinpoint the models that will receive the upcoming Android O update. Samsung will usually introduce two major operating system (OS) updates to its high-end models while only promising one major OS upgrade for mid- and entry-level phones.
If this remains the case, then mid-range Samsung Galaxy models such as the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro can be certain of getting the Android O update sometime in the future, which might even happen in 2018. However, as the list of devices provided by Neurogadget is not provided by Samsung and is based on how the South Korean tech giants has traditionally handled its software updates, some changes are possible.
The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro was released in the first quarter of 2017 and is marketed as a mid-range smartphone in the Galaxy series.
