Samsung opts out from including this handy Android feature on the Galaxy S23
What is Seamless Updates?
Seamless Updates, also referred to as A/B partition updates, is a way of updating your phone’s software without having to wait for the installation process to finish. In other words, you can keep using your phone while the new update is being installed in the background.
This approach is possible with devices that have two copies of partitions — an active and inactive one. The active one is used for operating the device, while the inactive partition is where the update is being installed in the background. When the installation has finished, all the user has to do is reboot and voila, no waiting for that loading bar anymore!

Still, this is a small setback for the amazing piece of tech that is the new Galaxy S23 lineup, so we are not talking about a deal breaker here!
