T-Mobile has released an update for the Samsung Exhibit II 4G and it will change the build of the phone to T679UVLE1. The update has been taken out majorly to rename the phone Galaxy Exhibit 4G and it also improves the performance of the phone by a notch or two and fixes some bugs. The update will be accompanied by a security patch for the phone and some general visual improvements.
The rollout of the update started from 30th May and will continue till 15th June. Slowly and steadily Samsung is bringing its phone under the Galaxy brand name. This update will bring the firmware of the phone to Android 2.3.6. This has been done keeping in mind that probably a Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS update is never going to happen for this phone as it is a budget friendly smart phone and not a high end one. The thing that catches the eye in this update is the name changing of the phone.
The move could be a strategic one or a one of choice. As T-Mobile already has a phone by the name Samsung Exhibit Galaxy 4G, all we can say is it did not like the II in the earlier name of the phone. This move could also have been made by the Korean major Samsung who could be planning to bring all its phones under the popular brand name ‘Galaxy’. The general updates to the phone’s Wi-Fi system and the stock camera application will happy news for the device owners.
The Samsung Exhibit II 4G was one of the few phones that was released last year and were not under the brand name of Galaxy. This can be seen as a move by Samsung to bring all its iconic phones under the same brand so customers don’t get confused about the different devices. Roll out of the update has started and as it started only yesterday, it will reach your phone in a couple of days. Until then, you will have to wait patiently.
