Verizon has confirmed a new update today for its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that will bring a number of changes to the handset. It is worth noting that this is not a new Android patch for Samsung?s 2013 released flagship smartphone. However, this patch will bring some new functionality to the GS4 and should enhance the general performance of the device.For example, the messaging app has been improved, the voicemail service should be more stable, and Bluetooth should perform better. There are also some Samsung specific additions such as the newest version of KNOX and the addition of Softcard (replacing ISIS Wallet). The download carries the build number KOT49H.I545VRUFNG6 and should be available over the air in due course.
