South Korean smartphone giant Samsung has started rolling out an emergency software update for Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 devices. It is reportedly said that the update is not a major one, but it seems pretty important to the company.
Moreover, Samsung says that the update is being rolled out because its S Finder universal search app "needs emergency updates for security and fundamental error correction."
The update could be downloaded over WiFi or over your carrier's network, though the latter will incur "additional data charges according to your data plan."
So far, we are not aware of whether the update will be released globally or to select markets. Samsung is yet to mention what specific problems S Finder was in fact facing. But it should never-the-less be installed if the company says so.
In a relative news, Samsung is also said to start rolling out Android 4.4.3 KitKat update for its flagship device Galaxy S5 later this month.
It is also worth mentioning that Samsung is also updating Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Wi-Fi (SM-T310) to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, according to the SamMobile. The device that launched in June last year is likely skipping Android 4.3 and getting a direct KitKat v4.4.2. The update is currently rolling out in France to the Wi-Fi-only model with build number T310XXUBNE9.
