Besides the faster opening of the
gallery app, the update also boosts the camera app opening speed of the
Galaxy S5, reports
Sammobile. This, when paired with the already existing 0.3 second
autofocus feature of the handset, would offer even better ISOCELL camera
experience to users.
The Galaxy S5 update additionally
enhances the fingerprint scanner accuracy and the fingerprint reading
time. The general performance of the Galaxy S5 (Review
has also been improved along with better RAM management.
Galaxy S5 firmware update, named G900FXXU1ANE2, is currently available
for UK customers (International model - SMG900F) and might soon reach
other regions, via OTA or Samsung Kies software. However, for those who
can't wait to get their hands on the latest update, they can manually
install it from
Sammobile, though we do not recommend this.
This is not
the first update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 handset since its launch
at the MWC 2014. Last week, Samsung announced its latest Knox 2.0
for the Galaxy S5, a suite that will be rolled out to other Samsung
Galaxy devices through OS upgrades in the coming months.
Knox Workspace includes a
series of core security enhancements for devices from erratic kernels to
third-party apps. Some of the features in Knox Workspace:
TrustZone-protected certificate management, Knox key store, real-time
protection for system integrity, two-factor biometric authentication and
the generic framework of Knox.
The Korean tech giant also
gave a stability update
, version XXU1ANCE, to its Galaxy S5 just before the release.
