1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!
    Android 8.0’s “streaming OS updates” will work even if your storage is full
    Android 8.0 will improve seamless updates functionality by no longer requiring users to have large amounts of space available to download the update. Instead, the system will now simultaneously download and install the new files directly into the system partition. In theory, a user should only need about 100KB free for metadata.

    I am guessing that they are going to do that by keeping a different partion for it.

    As I recall Android 7's "seamless updates" require 2 system partitions, so this is presumably an evolution of that setup.

    Of course it can only apply to devices where the manufacturer has supported the dual-partition setup, and I don't know how many other than Google themselves have done that.

    Sounds more user friendly, but having that extra partition will cause devices to permanently lose an extra 1-2GB of user storage in addition to what's already used by the OS.
