On Thursday, Samsung began releasing a software update for its flagship Galaxy S IV handset in Germany. The update very well may be Samsung’s answer to previous memory concerns expressed by customers, which the comany pledged to fix.
One of the major features included in the update is the ability to move apps over to an SD card, helping to free up on-board storage. Additional features include the addition of a see-through notification bar when using custom wallpapers, new camera firmware with an HDR video recording option, and a new increased visibility display mode.
The update also changes the look of the S Planner and settings icons, and a Smart Pause toggle has been added to the drop down list. According to recent reports, the update also provides users with an extra 0.8GB of internal storage through software optimization.
The update is currently available in Germany only, and it is sizeable, sitting at 366MB. Unfortunately Samsung has made no announcements regarding updates in other countries, but hopefully we will see a universal release soon.
