Nexus S 4G gets NFC update on July 11

The Google Nexus S 4G on Sprint is set to receive an OTA update on July 11. The minor update will bring the device's software up to version GRJ90 and includes several enhancements including an update for the NFC Secure Element chip built-in to the device for Google Wallet.

This feature update allows for the storage of a user's encrypted payment card credentials on a computer chip, called the Secure Element. Google describe it as being like a separate computer within the device to that only allows trusted programs to run on the Secure Element to access the necessary payment information.

The update also brings with it some other enhancements. Among them is a 4G Settings Widget, TTY Support, NI Push Support, Improved WiFi Connectivity, Speakerphone audio quality, 4G-throughput and signal acquisition. The signal strength indicators are also retuned. [via Sprint Feed]
