Samsung ATIV S gets Windows Phone 8.1 GDR 1

3

Wow, who would have thought of that, the Samsung ATIV S is one of the first Windows Phone devices to get the final Windows Phone 8.1 Update / GDR 1 version.

According to Windows Mania Poland Samsung ATIV S devices are currently receiving a firmware update which includes the GDR 1 Update. It seems to be an official one coming directly from Samsung because it includes also an update for the radio driver.
So far this Update has been provided only for the Nokia Lumia 930, the Lumia 830 and the Lumia 730 as a final version so it makes me indeed wondering when all the Lumia devices will get the update from Microsoft.
However the update is only coming to devices which are not participating on the Windows Phone Developer Preview Program, so if you own a Samsung ATIV S and want to get he final GDR 1 Update you will have to downgrade your devices as a Developer Preview Program participant or you are patient enough until it comes for all devices.

Below you can have a look at a screenshot from a Samsung ATIV S showing that the latest OS version is installed.
