Galaxy S5 gets last-minute bug squashing update ahead of launch
With hours left until the global release of the Galaxy S5, Samsung is pushing a stability update to the device.
Just like it did with the Gear Fit, which received a significant update the day ahead of its release, Samsung is pushing a last-minute modification to the software stack of the Galaxy S5. The update weighs in at about 30MB and, at least on the surface, the changes are limited to improvements to the phone’s stability. In other words, there should be fewer bugs and crashes spoiling your new smartphone experience.
The update brings firmware version to XXU1ANCE and may be available to Galaxy S5 buyers as soon as they power up their devices starting tomorrow. The device is currently on sale in South Korea (where it debuted with a solid performance), as well as in some Middle Eastern markets.
