Software updates for the Galaxy S9 will come out faster than for the Galaxy S8, SamMobile found out. The flagship, out of the box running Android Oreo, received native support for the Project Treble architecture. Thanks to it, the manufacturer will spend significantly less time adapting updates.
Essentially Project Treble architecture is a modular framework that does not depend on the so-called low-level software, created by chipset manufacturers. Thanks to this, the vendor can start the development of the update, having access to fewer software components than before, which greatly simplifies the whole process.
Galaxy S9 was presented Feb. 25 at the conference Unpacked 2018. The smartphone has a recognizable appearance, powerful Snapdragon processor 845, 4/6 GB of RAM and a rethinking of the camera with a variable aperture. Thanks to the latest innovation, the smartphone was able to make better pictures even in low light conditions.
Sales of Galaxy S9 in Russia will start on March 16 at a price of 59,990 rubles per model in the basic configuration. The most expensive version with an index of “+” in the title and a 256-gigabyte drive is estimated by the manufacturer at 74,990 rubles. Pre-order for any of the novelties can be already today on the manufacturer’s website.
