Updates Tipped For HTC EVO 3D, Samsung Conquer 4G On Sprint
Samsung’s Conquer 4G on Sprint WiMAX isn’t even out yet, but a recently-leaked Sprint document shows that the smartphone’s already scheduled to receive a software update, followed shortly thereafter by an update for the HTC EVO 3D.
The Conquer is scheduled to launch on August 21. That very day, according to this information, Sprint will be sending out an OTA update designed solely to patch a potential security vulnerability with Qualcomm’s eXtensible Diagnostic Monitor software.
The EVO 3D’s update looks a little more substantial, containing a host of device-specific bugfixes. Post-update, you should experience more accurate GPS data, correct temperature display on the lockscreen (along with a fix for lockscreen freeze-ups), and see that birthdays finally show up right when syncing contacts with Facebook. If you’re a big bloat-hater, you’ll appreciate that the update will enable you to remove even more pre-installed apps than you could before. The EVO 3D update, system software 2.08.651.2, should start going out OTA on August 23, though a manual install will be possible as of August 18.
