You know those mobile companies that sell their device to you and abandon it without sending updates, all that is about to change as Google has enforced a new regulation regarding companies using their Android operating systems.
Google has asked that manufacturers who wish to keep running Android must provide OS updates for at least two years. According to Google –
“Security updates are mandated within the second year as well, though without a specified minimum number of releases.”
The contract covers any phone launched after January 2018 that has been “activated by more than 100,000 users”.
I believe this new regulation is impressive considering the fact that companies release phones and dump it forever without sending a single OTA update.It’s quite unfortunate that most brands in Nigeria are guilty of this.
To be honest, When last did you get an update on your phone?
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
