Verizon subscribers who own the Galaxy Camera will be happy to learn that the carrier will be pushing out a software update for the device. However, the update is not an Android one.
The Verizon software update will come over the air and will reportedly bring new and improved features to the camera. The update is quite large, at 179.8MB.
"Those carrying a Verizon Wireless branded Galaxy Camera may want to be on the lookout for an update. Basically, Verizon Wireless has announced and will soon begin rolling out the update which contains some new features and modes as well as some smaller improvements. The update will be coming over-the-air and will measure in at a rather large 179.8MB in size," reports Android Community.
The changelog for the build VRAMC4 is now available and lists the changes the update will bring Galaxy Camera users' way.
"Verizon Wireless is pleased to announce a new software update, SW Version JZO54K.GC120VRAMC4, for your Samsung Galaxy Camera," notes Verizon.
The new update will bring a Help App which comes with a guidebook for the Galaxy Camera and explains "detailed functions of main apps and features" that have been implemented. The software update will also bring the S Memo app, which will enable users to "create his/her own record with S Memo using photos that have already been taken."
The update will also bring "4 Addtional Smart Modes" which take the tally to 19 modes for editing. These modes are Dawn, Party, Indoor, Snow and Food.
Moreover, the update brings the Remote Viewfinder app, which allows "compatible smartphones - including GALAXY S series, Tab series or iPhone - to control your Galaxy Camera using a Wi-Fi Connection."
