So, we have heard word that Samsung could very well introduce a speedier version of their Galaxy S4 smartphone later this month (in essence, it would be able to support LTE Advanced, or LTE-A for short), but before that happens, how about hearing that there is a spanking new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that is making its way towards Verizon Wireless? This is not some sort of information which was pulled out from thin air, but rather, courtesy of a recently revealed Bluetooth SIG filing, where the device carries the model number Samsung SCH-I545L, where the “L” would be the only difference between the new model number and the model number of the existing Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4, which stands at SGH-I545.
I guess the folks over at Samsung want the Galaxy S4 to achieve a whole lot more than what it can at the moment, and we have literally seen the fruit of their reward in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.
If you happen to own the Sony Xperia S, you would know by now that the smartphone is still far from being obsolete, as there is still some life left in its legs. The thing is, we did bring you word earlier this month that the Sony Xperia S has gotten a new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware update, and here we are today with additional information on what’s to come as well. Sony Mobile could very well roll out a new firmware update for the Sony Xperia S (aka model LT26i), and this bit of speculation came about after making a deduction on the comments over at their support forums.
Sony Mobile’s representative did coyly suggest that a new update could very well arrive during week 28 (if you were to whip out one of the fancier electronic calendars out there, week 28 would be the week where 8 July kicks off). This alleged new firmware update will not deliver changes under the hood where you are unable to see anything else on the outside, but rather, it is said to be a whole lot more tangible to the end user since it would have fixed a bug which folks are having with NFC connectivity, especially when it comes to beaming content to other devices.
It remains to be seen whether this will be a totally new update after version 6.2.B.0.211, where that particular version happened to have landed in certain regions only. On the other hand, we are not ruling out the possibility that this could very well be a wider launch for the ’211′ firmware, so stay tuned as we are sure additional information will be revealed in due time.
