According to THE VERGE, getting an Android update two years after its original release wouldn’t normally be a cause for celebration, it’s basically unheard of for an Android manufacturer to still be updating a handset six years after its original release. Only Apple comes close to these kinds of support periods and recently released its latest iOS 15 updates for the 2015 iPhone 6S. Jamb Result

Beta testing of Android 10 for Fairphone 2 starts today, with the aim to be publicly available in early 2022. Another good news is that the beta testing for Fairphone 3 and 3+ users, beta testing for Android 11 also starts this week.

For the Fairphone 2’s Android 10 update, the company says it collaborated with its community to speed up the update process. Together with help from Indian software developer Bharath Ravi Prakash, Fairphone says the Fairphone 2’s Android 10 update took just 10 months to develop, compared to 18 months for Android 9.

THE VERGE reports that this is good news for anyone still using a Fairphone 2 who wants to benefit from Android 10 features like gesture navigation and support for an OS-level dark mode. But it’s also reassuring for anyone thinking about picking up its latest phone, the Fairphone 4, which the company hopes to keep supported for six years until 2027.
