Lately, Samsung has been very aggressive and prompt in rolling out the Android Lollipop update to its flagship smartphones. However, the firm seems to be partial when it comes to the entry level smartphones.
We say this as the official Samsung UK Twitter handle has claimed that the Galaxy Ace 4 smartphone will not receive the Android Lollipop update. This was stated by the firm in response to the request of a user regarding the update.
The Galaxy Ace 4 was launched in the last year in two variants with 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of RAM and 4G LTE connectivity support. The lack of the Lollipop update for a device that is almost a year old is pretty annoying.
Earlier this year, Samsung called off the assured Android Lollipop update for the Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone due to the memory limitations as the main issue faced during the testing process. Notably, the Galaxy S4 Mini has 1.5 GB of RAM that is larger than the 1 GB RAM in Galaxy Ace 4.
Samsung is yet to officially claim the reason for the lack of the Android Lollipop update rollout for the Galaxy Ace 4, but it is expected to be cancelled due to the RAM limitations.
It is not surprising to hear that the low end models do not receive the latest Android builds as it is a common practice among several manufacturers. However, it is acceptable if it is due to the hardware limitations in the device.
