Verizon and T-Mobile Galaxy S5 getting a firmware update

Galaxy S5

The Verizon and T-Mobile variants of the Samsung Galaxy S5 have started receiving a firmware update which brings forth a multitude of changes and bug fixes.  The firmware patch on Verizon’s Galaxy S5 changes the software version to KOT49H.G900VVRU1ANE9 and updates some of its apps such as the Message+, Cloud as well as Caller Name ID. T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung flagship is getting the VoLTE feature with this minor update. The Android version remains unchanged at 4.4.2 for both smartphones, so nothing’s changed in that regard.

Below are a few bug fixes listed by Verizon:

  • Search’ icon has been removed within Memo when there is no memo
  • Favorite ‘Contact’ information background is now more readable
  • Visual Voicemail works when S-View flip cover is closed
  • Connectivity has been improved when streaming music
  • Stability has been improved for Samsung Gear Manager
  • Text alert improvements for select factory installed car kits
  • “Primary Contacts” label has been changed to “Emergency Contacts” when in Emergency Mode
  • Power On password

If you’re a Verizon customer, you might lose root access on the device after the update, so make a note of that if your smartphone is rooted. There are no such reports coming from T-Mobile customers yet, but we can’t be too sure at the moment.
