Update treats the Galaxy S5 to even faster camera and gallery apps, improved fingerprint scanning
Samsung's latest and greatest, the Galaxy S5, was the giant's first device that came with a fingerprint sensor on board. Although it's not the first handset with such a feature, the Galaxy S5 is the only smartphone that supports PayPal's FIDO authorization system. Still, the fingerprint sensor proved to be a hit-or-miss feature and it appears that Samsung was aware of that, as an update for the international variation of the device (SM-G900F) seems to be increasing its overall accuracy.

Rolling out under the G900FXXU1ANE2 version name, the firmware update does not only improve the precision of the feature, it also brings some enhancements in the camera and interface compartments, too – both the camera and the gallery apps now seemingly open faster than before. This, coupled with the impressive 0.3-second autofocus of the 16MP rear snapper, should provide fans of Samsung's flagship with even better user experience whenever they decide to benefit from the ISOCELL camera's goodness.

The firmware update is also not devoid of improvements under the hood. These include some performance refinements, as well as better RAM management. It is very likely that the update incorporates the usual bug fixes, too.

G900FXXU1ANE2 is not the first firmware updateto land on the Galaxy S5. Still, this is the first one the device receives this month.

The update is rolling out both over the air and through Samsung's Kies desktop companion suite. Nonetheless, be advised that your Galaxy S5 may not be among the first wave of devices to receive it. If you don't wish to play the waiting game, you can manually download and flash the firmware by following the source link, courtesy of SamMobile.
