According to a support page over at Verizon, HTC’s Droid DNA handset will receive its first – and major – update since it launched last year. The update will bring with it a myriad of bug fixes for a lot of problems users have reported, as well as improvements to audio quality and new features. The update hasn’t rolled out yet and there’s no word on when exactly it will happen, but all signs point to “soon.”
The update slated for release is build 2.04.605.2, and will leave users at 4.1 instead of 4.2 Jelly Bean, sadly. Still, the update will bring with it a slew of bug fixes, as well as some new features and improvements. Hotspot connectivity and the audio quality experienced when using headsets and ear pieces are two such improvements, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and volume level.
Wireless Internet connectivity has also been improved, likely for a more stable connection, though the support page doesn’t specify. The default browser on the device will have improved zooming capabilities, and the Enhanced Recent Apps fuction will also have some tweaks over the current version. The problem with messages showing an incorrect timestamp is also corrected by the update.
Says the support page, Contacts List has also been improved so that it is more stable and reliable. Finally, users will also be able to load Hulu Plus videos after the update, which is in excess of 100MB. Like all updates, you’ll receive a notification when it is available, so keep an eye on your handset, and drop us a line when you see the update roll out.
