XU4 vs C4 vs provided OS

Post by thomasx »

Hi

Newbie here :)

When looking at benchmarks, the XU4 seems a bit more powerful than the C4
But when looking at OS's provided, the C4 is provided with Android 9 (Pie), while the XU4 is only provided with the old Android 4 (Kitkat).

How come there is no newer version of Android provided for the XU4?

Thanks, ThomasX

Android update with newer version only possible when newer BSP comes from SoC vendor which is Samsung for ODROID-XU4. Since they don't release new BSP after Kitkat, there is no chance to support newer version.

Aha, ok. So the XU4 is kind of old then. So then it's the C4 I should go for. They had the XU4 in a local shop. But I will order a C4 then. Thanks for the info!
