    Samsung details thirteen changes it has made in Tizen 2.4.0.4

    The last major update that Samsung pushed out for the Tizen operating system (OS) was Version 2.4, which started rolling out for the Samsung Z1 back in January. Since then, a handful of minor stability updates have been distributed, but we haven't seen a release that brings any new functionality to the OS. However, it looks like that's all about to change as the South Korean company has taken to its official Tizen Community Forum to detail a truckload of changes that it's bundled into the much-anticipated Version 2.4.0.4 upgrade that's expected to start being pushed out next month.

    Thirteen fantastic new features will be making their way to Tizen 2.4.0.4, but we have a sneaky suspicion that they're all going welcomed with open arms seeing as they were created by the Research & Development team in response to the heaps of user feedback that Samsung receives from consumers on a daily basis. In my opinion, one of the best pieces of functionality that the firm has added is the facility to activate Outdoor Mode without having to unlock a device. All you have to do is pull down from the notification panel, then you're good to go.

    Fortunately, Samsung has provided a breakdown of all of the new features, together with a short description of what they do, and so that you don't have to waste time surfing the Web to try and locate the pages where they're is detailed, we've decided to include them in this post:

    1. SMS Delivery Report

    Time to stop wondering whether your SMS got delivered to your friend or your boss. With our new user suggested feature, you can easily enable SMS delivery reports in your phone settings. So sit back and relax – your message delivery report is on the way.

    2. Battery Status Reminders

    How often do we try to keep our phone battery over say 50% while leaving work because there’s a long evening ahead? And how often do we actually remember to do so? With our battery charge reminders, set customized reminders to get notifications when your phone battery reaches a certain level. Want to get reminded when the phone battery is at 30%? Don’t worry. We will notify you. Simple, isn’t it?

    3. Outdoor Mode

    This superb feature enables you to easily access the outdoor mode setting without having to even unlock your device! Since you can’t see much on your screen, you should get the option to change the display settings upfront, right? So, here it is.

    4. Colorful Memos

    Now add color to your memos and personalize them to a whole new level. Express your emotions, voice your mood and code your memos with our exciting new color options.

    5. Variable Torch Intensity

    6. Custom App Shortcuts on Lock Screen

    7. Option to ‘Select All' in My Files

    Want to move, share or delete all files on your device? Now this is possible with our new addition to quickly ‘select all’ files while performing a particular action.

    9. Wider SMS Bubbles

    Sometimes, the smallest of things can have a huge impact. This is one such thing. Thank you for suggesting this minute change that we are more than happy to fulfill. Now, there is better utilization of space in bubble view.

    10. ‘Beauty Face' Mode in Camera
