Sprint Nexus S 4G OTA Update Rolling Out July 11th


A much needed software update will be rolling out for Nexus S 4G users on July 11th. I wouldn’t be expecting Ice Cream Sandwich just yet. Instead users can look forward to a nice set of patches and bug fixes for the device. Here’s the full list for the GRJ90 update:

  • Enables NFC Secure Element
  • 4G Settings Widget
  • TTY Support
  • NI Push Support (PRL and Device Configuration)
  • Improved WiFi connectivity, speakerphone audio quality, 4G throughput and signal acquisition
  • Tuned signal strength indicators

Looks like they’ve successfully managed to cover most of the issues users have been having with their device in regards to connectivity. Users will be prompted of the update over a 4 day period starting on July 11th so be on the lookout.
