Unfortunately, and as the site points out Android AuthorityThe new versions of the green robot operating system are getting fewer and fewer devices or taking longer to get to the devices. It's because? First of all, because brands, builders take time to develop and prepare each new update package.
As a general rule, after Google officially releases the new version of its operating system, on average you will have to wait about 6 months for your smartphone or tablet to receive the new software. May the other builders follow the example of Motorola.
On the other hand, builders are bringing fewer devices to market. We have reached a stable level where top brands launch fewer devices. We usually have one or two tops, three mid-range devices, and two or three input range devices. This is the trend of Samsung and Huawei that dominate this green robot market.
These lists will continue to update as the brand releases more dates and information. In the meantime share or save the article.
