Galaxy Xcover 4 Android 9 Pie update

  • Android 9 Pie update not expected

The Galaxy Xcover 4 isn’t your typical popular Samsung phone, but still, Samsung has been good at keeping it updated. Sadly, it appears that the device won’t be receiving a second major OS upgrade in Android 9 Pie. Even worse is that it looks unlikely that developers will be willing to bring about Android Pie custom ROMs for this handset, but if they do, we’ll for sure bring you up to speed, so keep tabs on this page for future updates.
