Samsung has been regarded to be quite slow in rolling out main Android updates; however, whereas it nonetheless can’t beat Google, it has admittedly started doing better. It already kicked off beta tests of One UI 2.0 with Android 10 for its 2019 flagships and has begun giving its 2018 phones, significantly the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, some consideration as effectively. Sadly, it appears that evidently, it might be beginning off on the wrong foot by not together with one function that has made the lot-reviled Bixby some usefulness.
It has almost been three months since Android 10, the primary public model to haven’t any dessert title, was made available to the public. To date, the adoption of the most recent Android launch has been fairly low, which might be why Google does not even talk about distribution numbers. That can also be why it’s a giant factor when OEMs finally do replace their phones or, in this case, begin the beta test.
Samsung began the public beta of Android 10 on the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 last month and, thus far, there was no news of any main blockers, particularly ones that bricked phones. Unfortunately, it could include some bad news, at least for Bixby users.
Hopefully, it is just a temporary setback as there doesn’t appear to be any technical or logical motive for Samsung to withhold such a function from these not-so-old phones. It positively nonetheless has time to iron out the kinks as Samsung isn’t expected to start out rolling out One UI 2 with Android 10 till early 2020, and that’s for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 first.
