Less than two weeks have passed since the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S21, but details are already bothering users. This is because, contrary to what would be normal, the Samsung Galaxy S21 do not support one of the best features of Android 11.
Background updates outside the Galaxy S21
This is a feature that first came to Google Pixel in 2016, but with Android 11 it has become practically mandatory. The so-called “background updates” allow updates to be installed on a secondary partition, so that you can use the smartphone on it while it installs.
In this way, downtime between firmware updates is eliminated, and there is only room for a single smartphone restart. The purpose of this feature is also that the smartphone can return to a previous partition, in case the update goes wrong.
What is reported by Brandon Lee of This Is Tech Today, is that the new Samsung Galaxy S21 is not compatible with this new feature. In this way, when installing updates, everything will work in the “old fashioned way”.
As yet there is no official statement that defines why Samsung did not put this feature on the Galaxy S21. But it is suspected that this has to do with storage, and that the technology simply does not want to occupy 3GB of storage with this partition.
This may seem, in reality, a first world problem. But taking into account that the feature is part of Android 11, it is not understood why Samsung did not implement it in its best smartphones today. Loses the user.
