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. The dual-SIM smartphone comes with a 6-inch Full HD AMOLED display that delivers 1920 x 1080p resolution. The device is also powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 653 SoC processor.
Other key highlights of the smartphone include a rear 16MP camera that has an aperture of f/1.9 and a dual-LED flash, internal storage of 64GB which can be expanded up to 256GB through the usage of a microSD card, and a 4000mAh battery with fast-charging support.
