Update rolling out for AT&T’s Galaxy S4
Update ahoy, AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 users! Coming hot on the heels of new software Samsung rolled out to German variants of the Snapdragon Galaxy S4 last week, the firmware update for the U.S. carrier contains a number of enhancements owners have been clamoring for, including (but not limited to) a reduced memory footprint and expandable app storage via SD card. The update also incorporates support framework for Samsung’s enterprise security platform, Knox, which should be music to the ears of those at companies with “bring your own device” policies.
Other notable improvements include the camera app, which has been updated to support HDR video, and a toggle for Smart Pause. A few minor U.I. tweaks are present, also: the status bar is now semi-transparent, and the Settings app contains new icons.
Here’s the full changelog:
- New Camera firmware
- Smearing issue has been fixed (Purple effect while scrolling)
- Smart Pause Toggle
- Move Apps to SD Card
- HDR Video (Can record HDR video)
- Semi-transparent status bar
- New Icons in Settings
- Secure boot status (About Phone)
- Increase legibility (Display) (New feature)
The update is 357 MB is size, and is available for download through Samsung’s KIES desktop software or OTA (over-the-air).
