The consolidating smartphone pie
but one thing I know for certain is that no matter what the phone, any updates will feel like they took too long to make it into our hands.
2016 turned out to be the year that shocked the smartphone world, in terms of sales.
Lenovo has taken a lot of the fanfare surrounding Android version updates away and quietly builds them in the background.
Like mentioned earlier, these are just educated guesses at this point.So far in 2018, we’ve heard the company is going to release more phones than ever this year and that they were scaling back and had to lay off employees (in the same week, no less) so we’re not sure just what to expect in the coming months.One thing I am pretty sure of is that every one of those 2017 phones, as well as any we see in 2018, will be updated to Android Pie.That’s more than 5 billion smartphones shipped in seven years.Apple, which sits firmly at the high end of the smartphone segment, sold 808,753 million i Phones during that period.
It seems like manufacturers only care about a few models that get a lot of press time. (It’s totally skill.) Let’s break it down by the major manufacturers of the phones we love and make a few predictions.
