Samsung and Care Mobile, the joint venture of Samsung Electronics Co. and Care Group, are offering consumers the option of downloading a free version of the Android-based Samsung One, the company’s flagship phone.
The free Samsung One Android app will be available for download on Google Play and other digital storefronts from today through Aug. 29.
Users will have the option to install the Android software on their devices to take advantage of its security and features.
The Samsung One will be free of the security patches that have been included in previous updates.
The company has been working on a new version of Android for its phones, and it was expected to launch in the fall.
But that is no longer the case.
