by on06 June 2013

Brings HDR video, move to SD option

A new update has started to roll out for Samsung's Galaxy S4 devices sold in Germany. The update should fix at least some of the problems that Galaxy S4 owners were facing from day one, including the low free storage issue.

The new update is around 360MB heavy and with it, the 16GB Galaxy S4 ends up with 9.23GB of free space instead of the earlier 9.15GB. The update also brings an even more important move-to--SD option that should allow users to get even more free space.

The camera app has been updated to bring the new HDR video feature and Samsung apparently also fixed a couple of screen related issues including one that showed up during scrolling. The notification area got a Smart Pause toggle button and while the rest of the updates includes a couple of new icons, calendar update and bunch of other minor updates. The update is currently available only in Germany and on Snapdragon-based Galaxy S4 while Exynos one should follow up soon.

You can check out for the update via OTA or via Kies.
