Sprint has announced updates for two different devices. The Samsung Galaxy Mega and the HTC EVO 4G LTE are receiving two small updates.
The Galaxy Mega is a huge phone with 6.3-inch screen with split view and multi window option to take full advantage of its size. Its aimed to people who enjoy their smartphones and give them other uses beside making phone calls.
The Galaxy Mega is already running with Android 4.4 KitKat, so this update just brings a few new features and fixes some security issues. With the new version, the Mega users will be able to do international Wi-Fi calling and will have an HD Voice icon. The new version number is L600VPUBNI3.
On the other hand, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is a little smaller phone (5.3-inch screen) and was launched running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwitch. On december 2012, the Sprint version of the device was updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a few more updates has been rolling out since then.
Now, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is also receiving a minor update. This device has not been updated to Android 4.4 and the company already announced that they are not going to deliver the update to KitKat for this model. So, the new version (number 3.17.651.9 ) only fixes some security bugs.
Both updates are going to reach its users the next days, but if you don’t want to wait for the notification, you can just check manually if the update is available. To do so, just go to the corresponding option under the Settings menu and tap on the “About device” option.
If the update is available, you can directly download and install it. After rebooting the device, you will find the new number version under the “About device” option.
