Update to Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S4 brings optical reader and more
An update has started rolling out to Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The update weighs in at 150MB and features Samsung's optical reader app which allows you to take a picture of a business card using the rear camera, and turn it into another name and number on your contacts list. The app can also translate text printed in different languages.

Other changes with the update include improved Wi-Fi connectivity, bug fixes for S Memo, support for three-way calling when using the Bluegrass network and support for roaming while using Canadian carrier Telus. The update also improves Setup Wizard, and making a long video no longer automatically shuts down your phone. Call Restrictions has been renamed Call Block in settings, and a few other minor changes will be seen after installing the update.

The software version is VRUDMI1 and if you own a Samsung Galaxy S4 with the Verizon brand, it is coming right at you. If you're the impatient type and can't wait for the update to hit your phone OTA, you can always sync your handset to your PC and pull the update out of Samsung Kies.
