Samsung Ativ S Gets Updated To Windows Phone 8.1

By 05:20 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

The Samsung Ativ S is now ready to enter the Windows Phone 8.1 club. Lagging behind several Nokia handsets, the smartphone launched two years ago is finally starting to receive an over-the-air update to Windows Phone 8.1.

Owners of the Ativ S in both Italy and Germany have reported getting asked to perform the update. Furthermore, Samsung confirmed the rollout for unbranded units srecent in Italy, so other European countries should see it pretty soon, we assume.

As is usually the case with such things, the rollout might hold a while, so perhaps don't lose sight of your patience just yet.

The update comes with a few recent features, such as the Action Center for notifications and shortcuts, the ability to utilize a background image for the tiled home screen, a swipe-enabled keyboard, an optional third row of tiles, improved Bing search, separate volume levels for ringtones and notifications and for media files and apps, a recent layout for the Camera app, live folders, and a classy screen sharing option (that works only via USB).

Music and Videos are now two separate apps. The dialer, calendar, task manager, and Internet Explorer have been updated too, sporting better performance and graphics.
