Thanks for your reply in any case.
my understanding is that it's like email and is password specific. when ur in the play store you're in by means of your google password, so as long as you're using the same password/account on the new model phone, it should sync your apps accordingly. it's more of a cloud feature. it makes more sense to me this way based on using one set of credentials, which means it wouldn't matter if done on different models. I very well could be wrong, but this is how I understand it to work
