HTC reveals which four of its handsets will be updated to Android 9.0 Pie

5 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

5 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

An upcoming Android 9 Pie update is likely to fix an issue many users have been experiencing since the developer preview stages of Android P. The severity and frequency of the issue will likely be dependent on how often an individual device owner uses the back button, and especially when viewing the ‘recents' screen.
