T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G sees a minor update, but it's not ICS just yet
At the time of our review, we were quite content of the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile – mainly because it packed some decent hardware under the hood, while being attached with an affordable price point. For anyone out there owning the device, you should be seeing a new software update right about now, but it’s not bringing the smartphone up to snuff with Ice Cream Sandwich – well, not now anyway.

Rather, this minor software update seems to pack your typical bug fixes, while serving as a preparatory one for a later ICS update. Yes, it means that owners will continue to wait for the highly anticipated update, but nevertheless, this one should no doubt appease some people out there.

Taking a quick peek at T-Mobile’s support site for the handset, the over-the-air update brings the handset to Android version 2.3.6 / Software T769UVLF4. If you’re still not seeing the update through the OTA method, it’s actually now available to download through Samsung Kies as well. Specifically, the minor update packs the following items with it:

  • E911 issue over Wi-Fi resolved
  • Echo issue when on Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) call
  • Proximity Sensor improved

As T-Mobile notes, before proceeding to install the update, you’ll need to verify that your handset is not rooted and that it has at least 50% battery life.

You can get this phone for 299 contract free which is a huge deal, if you're someone like me...
