Samsung is planning an update for its high-end phones, which will be followed by a gradual deployment to other models. As of January, the Galaxy S9 and S9 + will benefit from the new operating system, followed by the Galaxy S8, S8 +, Note 8 and Note 9 in the first quarter of 201
In the second quarter, the Korean manufacturer plans to Bring Pie to Galaxy A7, A8 and A9 before making it available on J3, J4, J6 and J7 later this year.
For Huawei and its subsidiary Honor have promised an early 2019 Pie Update for several of its models: Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, P20 and P20 Pro, and Honor Play, 10 and View 10.
Android Users Can check if Pie is available for its model by looking for updates in their phone settings. Samsung and Huawei models will also get new Experience and EMUI skins compatible with this latest version of Android.
The most important new feature of Android Pie is a new gesture navigation system that allows users to easily switch between open applications. Android Pie also improves the battery life of most smartphones using a more sophisticated analysis of user habits and behavior. – AFP-Relaxnews
