Samsung Droid Charge Update Gets Approved By Verizon


If you recall, the Droid Charge was one of the original 4G LTE devices on Verizon’s network, but it appeared to some users that it had become abandoned by Verizon, which hasn’t issued any updates for it in a while. However, the device is now due to receive an update in the near future to Android’s build FP8.

In the forthcoming update, users will notice that support has been added for Face Unlock, Photo Editor, Recording Snap Shot, and Vector Font.

For readers unaware of Face Unlock, the concept of this is simple: your phone’s front facing camera scans your face for a few seconds, then compares it to one or more previously saved head shots. If a match is discovered you will be granted access to your phone’s homepage. If it doesn’t recognize you, you will have to enter a predetermined PIN code.

Verizon has also made an effort to remove the ton of bloatware that comes preloaded on the Droid Charge; applications like Rhapsody, Blockbuster, BitBop, Tunewiki, VOD, and Mobile Instant Messenger (MIM) will be instantly removed once you update to FP8.
