Amazon updating the Fire Phone with some minor features

Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon is sending out a new update for the Fire Phone with some decent additions in tow. The device is receiving some UI improvements and a new call blocking feature. For those keeping note, the software version of Fire OS changes to 3.6.8 with the new update. Interestingly, the update is only rolling out to the unlocked model and AT&T’s variant is still running Fire OS 3.6.5.

Amazon mentions that there are some interface improvements along with the update, so it’s quite massive keeping that in mind. There’s also the usual suite of bug fixes and other patches on board, which is worth a mention as well. The entire changelog posted by Amazon is quite lengthy, so make sure you give it a thorough look if you own the Fire Phone.

Amazon’s first attempt at a smartphone hasn’t exactly been a success, although the company is keen to keep trying. The smartphone can currently be purchased for as low as $229.99 off contract, so it might be worth a look if you’re in the mood for some holiday shopping.
