Verizon Announces New Update For The Samsung Galaxy Stellar


Verizon is gearing up to roll out a new software update for the Samsung Galaxy Stellar. The update was announced today and brings a bunch of stability improvements, new features, and improvements to the entry-level device.

As the Galaxy Stellar has already made the jump from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean, the update doesn’t bring any new stock Android features. But Verizon insists the update brings a host of much-needed improvements to speakerphone audio and hotspot connectivity.

The update also brings ‘new capabilities’ to the Galaxy Stellar, such as the addition of the CallerID app to the application tray and the inclusion of the Amazon App Store as a preloaded app.

The Galaxy Stellar is a great device for anyone who doesn’t need a high-end smartphone. It’s one of the most affordable devices under the Galaxy brand, and packs a punch for mid-to-low range smartphone users, with a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen and 4G LTE capabilities.

Verizon hasn’t announced when the update will start being pushed out, but we do know that it will be 80.3 MB in size.
