Incremental update for the Galaxy S4 (I9500) brings Knox 2.0 and Mute mode

Samsung India has released an incremental update for the Galaxy S4 (I9500) in the country. The core OS version remains at Android 5.0.1 even though it has been a couple of weeks since Google released Android 5.0.2. This is an incremental update that comes in just north of 300MB. It doesn’t bring any major changes or any new features. However it does make some minor changes under the hood.

The Knox security suite has been upgraded from version 1.0 to version 2.0 in this update. It brings an improved user interface, two-factor biometric authentication, TrustZone-Protected Certificate Management, support for apps from the Google Play Store, better device integrity from kernel to app and other enhancements. The “Interruptions” mode that was introduced with the Lollipop update has now been removed. Mute mode is back for the Galaxy S4 (I9500) with this update.

Yes they know you’re here and your NOTE 4, but S4 need new UI(TouchWiz) like newer phones because s4 is good phone , you will get s6 software in next updates be patient and you will get best update, I think NOTE 4 will get s6 futures after selling s6

Okay, it doesn’t matter which country they released the upgrade to. I can work my way around it and install it. Curiosity always wins over stability in my eyes. Thus I learn more. I’m more of a learner. Some people like stability, so they can wait 🙂 I like to see how a hardware or software evolves, by experiencing it 🙂 But one thing is stupid, especially at the present day. They should stop releasing seperated updates for every major country. One effing worldwide update should to it. At least seperate it only for I9505-I9500… If people want to install… Read more »
