Samsung has just started rolling out a new software update for its Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 users. This new update brings the Android version to 8.1 Oreo instead of the expected Android 8.0 Oreo. It is being reported that the new update is currently rolling out in a number of Asian countries including Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. The update also comes along with August 2018 security patch and updates the Samsung Experience UX version to 9.5. However, the Experience UX version will not really bring all the new features as the Xcover 4 is a budget device.

The update was initially reported by SamMobile which pointed out that the update comes with firmware number G390YDXU2BRH7_G390YOLB2BRH7_MYM . It is likely that this number is country specific because of the hardware differences in the devices based on the country or the carriers that they are launching on. It is likely that the update is rolling out in an incremental manner which means that it may not show up on your Xcover 4 right away. Instead, it would take some days or hours before the update appears on your device. Also Read - Samsung phone price drop: Check new prices of Galaxy M31s, M11, and M01

The incremental update is done so that Samsung can ensure that there are no serious software flaws in the update that may cause issues for users. This makes it possible for the company to quickly stop the rollout in case of any problem so that not all Xcover 4 devices in the market are affected at the same time.

Talking about the device, it comes with an in-house quad-core Exynos 7570 SoC along with up to 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The device features a 5-inch HD screen with 16:9 aspect ratio, and a 13-megapixel camera sensor on the back of the device with a 2,800mAh battery.
