Yes, you read that correctly. The Samsung Droid Charge has a new update waiting in the wings at Verizon. The carrier just posted the changelog for the new software, an overall minor upgrade to the Droid Charge’s firmware. The software brings the phone’s build to i510.FP8 but stays put at Android Gingerbread.
Included in the update, however, are features one might expect from a new Android build, including Face Unlock. The implementation is likely Samsung’s own. There is also a new Photo Editor, the Recording Snap Shot (for grabbing pictures while taking video, we assume), and Vector Font. The device is also now preloaded with “Get Video Calling” while several older preinstalled apps have been removed.
The appearance of the update’s documentation means it will likely be pushing over the next few days. Any Charge owners still out there? Let us know what you think of the new software.
