Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505 gets a software update, i9500 to follow
Samsung’s Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S4 (model number GT-i9505) ha started receiving a new software update. And while this doesn’t change the Android version the handset is running (it will still be 4.2.2 Jelly Bean), it brings a slew of improvements.
First of all, after the update users will be able to move apps on a MicroSD card – really helpful for the 16GB version of the S4, as this only offers slightly over 9GB of user-accessible memory.
Other things included in the update (which weighs in at 365.67 MB): new Camera firmware, HDR video capabilities, new icons in Settings, semi-transparent status bar, and increase display legibility.
According to Sam Mobile, Galaxy S4 GT-i9505 owners in Germany have started receiving the update today (over the air, or via Samsung Kies). Other regions should follow soon. Moreover, the Galaxy S4 GT-i9500 (the Exynos version) should also get the update in the near future.
As of last month, Samsung has sold more than 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones around the world.
