Android is a part of various devices today, such as smart phones, tablets, enterprise grade devices, kiosk devices, point-of-sale devices, AR/VR devices, etc. Due to the fast evolution of Android, device OEMs face challenges like ensuring that their devices are up-to-date with the latest versions of Android. Along with this, they also have to ensure that their devices have the latest hardware in order to make complete use of the features that the newer versions enable because the presence of older hardware in devices can compromise the device's overall performance. For example, some of the new features of Wi-Fi like WPA3 and Enhanced Open need upgraded hardware. Hence, a major challenge that OEMs go through is getting the latest product to the market with the latest Android version in time.
All these challenges prove to be much bigger in enterprise grade devices and Automotive Infotainment systems because of longer product life. Such devices with longer product life need more upgrades than consumer smartphones.
