Samsung May Forced Update The OS In Background With Android 13

Published

on

One UI 5

Google launches a new Android version every year, which comes with new features and a lot of security. Android introduced seamless updates a few years ago, which make it easier and safer to update your devices. However, Google has never been able to force Samsung or other manufacturers to use it. However, things could alter with Android 13.

The Esper site has in fact noted that Google has introduced the phrase “device implementations should support A/B system updates” in the Android Compatibility Definition Document (CDD) for Android 13. This update mode makes use of A/B-type partitions to install the new firmware while the device is running.

This does not explicitly require OEMs to use the upgrade method, but it is further pointed out that the GMS license now requires virtual A/B to be supported. And this statement is demonstrated by new tests, which explicitly declare ‘Virtual A/B required for devices launched with T (Android 13)’.

Simply put, it appears like Google wants to compel users to adopt seamless upgrades by making them a requirement for devices that launch with Android 13 and an exception for those that ship with earlier versions.

Obviously, Samsung is not the only company to follow this rule, but as the leading Android manufacturer, it stands out as the most visible dissident. Can Google force obstinate OEMs to follow its upgrade policy? I’m not sure.

The Big G has already taken a similar step with Android 11 and removed the prerequisite prior to launch. Now that Android 13 has been released on smartphones, it appears to be a severe issue because the alterations are still in effect. The real test will come at the start of next year when Samsung releases the Galaxy S23 and we learn whether they will continue to support the reviled upgrading mechanism.

For Samsung’s foldable enthusiasts, especially those who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6, here’s a small glimpse for you. 

Leaks and rumors always spoil the surprises regarding upcoming Galaxy devices that Samsung hides for its big events, such as Galaxy Unpacked. The same case has happened for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 unit since rumors unveiled a small glimpse of what looks like a real Galaxy Z Fold 6. A leaked image showcases the actual look of the device. 

However, in the image, only the top of the smartphone is visible, so there’s not enough to guess more here, but something is better than nothing, as this image confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s design will be flatter and also have sharper edges and corners as compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It seems that the phone has a wider cover screen. That could just be a result of the angle at which the photo was taken, but there have been tons of indicators that Samsung is putting a certain extent of a of a larger cover display on the next Fold, and now the image appears to confirm that.

The Korean giant is also rumored to be working on a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim that will have a fair measurement of larger displays on the inside and outside while also having a thinner profile. This variant is expected to arrive by the end of this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are on their way to make their debuts at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on July 10.

Galaxy S25 Ultra to Feature First 50MP Ultrawide Since Galaxy S10

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.

The Korean firm ‘Samsung’ is about to launch its next-generation foldable smartphone – Galaxy Z Fold 6, which is expected to bring an updated camera design to enhance the look. 

We are not completely two months away from the Galaxy Unpacked event that is reportedly held on July 10 in Paris. Even before any official revelation regarding the specs, design, and features of Galaxy Z Fold 6,  tipsters already heated the market with leaks and rumors. Now the new report says that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 could bring a new camera design. 

A tipster on X shared an image that showcases the rear cameras of the Galaxy Z Fold 6, which is immediately apparent that this is different from any rear camera housing we have ever seen on the Galaxy Z Fold family before. This hints that this time Samsung could introduce a fresh design for the foldable’s rear camera this year. 

The image has a Samsung Galaxy AI watermark which points out that it might be made changes, however, it’s best to wait for more confirmation before trusting this particular design detail since the brand has yet to reveal any official details. 

Recently, the list of Galaxy devices, including, Galaxy Z Fold 6, Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra, and Galaxy Ring has already been leaked which arrived at the next Galaxy Unpacked event which is supposed to be held in July 2024.
