The Samsung Galaxy S4 (click here for more information on the Samsung Galaxy S4) was criticised for only allowing apps to be installed on the phone’s memory, when its software consumed half of the 16GB memory. The Korean tech giant has now rolled out an update that would allow users to install apps on the SD card, but the update is currently only available in Germany.

The news comes to us from SamMobile (click here to visit SamMobile). The site reports, “Currently, the new software update is only available for the Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) but our insider has confirmed that the new software update will be coming to the Exynos-powered Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500), as well. As of this moment, Samsung has only rolled out the new software update in Germany, we hope other countries will follow soon.”

The site adds, “The update is 365.67 MB in size and you can update your device via Samsung KIES or via FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air).”

The good news is the update will be rolling out to the Galaxy S4 in the UK. The bad news is the Korean firm did not mention when this will be. Speaking to CNET UK (click here to visit CNET UK), a Samsung spokesperson said, “Samsung UK will announce software updates for the Galaxy S4 in due course.”

Wondering when Samsung will update the Galaxy S4 in the UK? We’ll let you know once Samsung makes any further announcements.
