Ubuntu Touch OTA-13 will arrive on September 14

ethercastThe next version of the mobile operating system developed by Canonical, the OTA-13 It has already entered the freeze phase, which means that new features will no longer be added or new bugs will be fixed until the next version. This also means that they have everything they need to work with and are gearing up to release a new version that will finally come on the day. September 14. The first RC version could arrive this afternoon and will be available to all those who want to try them on their Ubuntu Phone or Ubuntu Tablet.

Of the first novelties that we can mention we have Unity 8 interface improvements, an interface that is now managed by the Mir 0.24 display server. But the most exciting new feature of the OTA-13 will be the support for Android 6.0 BSP, which means that there will be many more phones and tablets that will be able to support Ubuntu Touch in what appears to be an important step for Canonical's mobile operating system. spread out a little more.

OTA-13 will receive support for Android 6.0 BSP

If we take into account that Ubuntu Touch is still a system in a very immature phase, any news that they include can be very important. For example, the calculator will come to version 2.0.304, a major update that will change so much that it will even include a welcome screen to help us learn how to use it. The overall performance of the calculator will also improve.

The bad thing about Ubuntu Touch is what we have already commented on several occasions: exceeded hyping Since the arrival of a system developed by Canonical on mobile devices, we have to face a reality that shows that we do not have the most important mobile applications available to us. Yes, although it is true that we may like it more or less, we have to give as an example the most used messaging application on the planet at the moment: Whatsapp. Hopefully Mark Shuttlewoth has something planned and Ubuntu Touch ends up being a real option.

    Could it be installed on a Samsung Galaxy S3 ???

      Hello, Christ. Considering that it is a terminal that was launched more than 4 years ago, I doubt it, at least officially. My brother put Ubuntu on the Samsung Nexus, but in a kind of simulation. I don't think it can be installed on the S3, although I would love to be wrong.

      A greeting.

    This is the downside of hardware diversity in mobile phones. That a single system needs a zillion versions to work on each device is a complete fudge. Let's see if it can be solved with Ubuntu and with the future Fuchsia from Google, although I don't think so, the customization layers of companies are what give Google money in this case, and in Ubuntu let's see how they manage it.
