Verizon’s Ellipsis 7 Gets New Maintenance Update


Verizon is currently pushing out a relatively minor over-the-air update to all its carrier-branded 4G LTE enabled Ellipsis tablets currently located in the United States. Sadly, this upgrade doesn’t bring any major software modifications, such as Android 4.4 KitKat, but it does include a multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.

In terms of functionality, users will now be able to enjoy improved LTE connectivity, better image qualities, strengthened mobile hotspot connections, longer battery life and a handful of other slightly less important features. In addition, Verizon has now given users the choice of whether to store applications on an external microSD card or the standard 16GB of internal storage.

The full changelog for this update, software version MV7A_31D26_422, can be seen below:

  • Verizon 4G LTE data connectivity
  • Mobile Hotspot User Experience and Connectivity
  • Wireless connectivity
  • Image quality when using the camera
  • Battery life
  • SIM Card Activation experience improvements
  • Added support for Prepaid Plans
  • Added feature to allow editing of the APN name for Private IP
  • Option to configure camera to store photos and videos on an external SD card that can be purchased separately.
  • Added option for end users to move all applications to tablet space manually except for the preloaded apps.
  • Improved the UI notification for low memory conditions

If you own an Ellipsis 7 with Verizon branding and have not yet received this update, you can head into Settings, then About Device and select Check for Updates to manually scan for the upgrade. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification informing you to download and install the update.
