Google can promise its own smartphone and its own operating system with more years of updates.

I believe it’s coming! Google Pixel 8 seems to be becoming more and more interesting. In April, we learned that Google would’ve made its next smartphones even smaller. It’s good news, because compact phones are rare on the market, particularly if Asus does its Zenfone range.
With the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, Google should also tackle another subject where the brand had a tense delay: help for Android updates.
Surpass the lifetime of Samsung’s smartphones.
Google has developed Android like Apple is making iOS iOS the best, and yet Mountain View is a top-rated company when it comes to tracking calls on its own phone. The Google Pixel promises three years of major updates and five security upgrades.
For its part, Samsung has four years of major update on its smartphones, even on the first one. It seems ridiculous that, as such, the managing editor of the operating system, which is also one of the world’s richest companies, doesn’t manage any update and Samsung. The truth was still that, until Pixel 8.
To be honest, this is what 9To5Google believes, which indicates that Google would work in order to expand the update policy of Pixel 8 and future devices further. The idea was to complete the four years promised by Samsung and even reach Apples records. That latter does not promises the number of years of updates that are offered on the iPhone, but he knows that at least six years is available for updates.
By mastering more components than before, en route to integrating its own Google Tensor chips instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, Mountain View must be able to better manage the software support. Apple and Nvidia have given a good example in this area. The Nvidia Shield was born under Android 5.0 Lollipop in 2015, and now the box runs on Android 11, an update that was proposed in 2022.
We’re expecting the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro for October. It should be possible that this new initiative by Google be covered at the conference.
