Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat Update: What You Need to Know

Although Samsung did not announce anything about the Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update just yet, a number of reasons point out that an update is on the way to users already.

In September, Google announced the Android 4.4 KitKat update but the company revealed too little information about it.

In November, the update started rolling out for the Nexus devices and since then, it has arrived to other devices, until the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update last week. However, although the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 update started rolling out already, Samsung kept silent about the Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update and its plans remain unclear.

Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat Release Date Window

Although early rumours suggested that the Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 update will mirror the Galaxy Note 3 KitKat update release date, apparently that is not the case now. According to a French carrier, SFR, the Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update will roll out between January or February. On the other hand, SamMobile , a Web site famous for insider leaked software information, reported that the roll out will be in February or March. Furthermore, the Web site reported that at least one Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 update has just entered testing.

Galaxy Note 3 Release Date Should Mirror Galaxy S4 Release Date

Galaxy S4 owners who are waiting for the Android 4.4 KitKat update might want to look at the current state of the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update roll out as the process might be quite similar.

Samsung is known to roll out major updates in stages, which means that updates are done slowly. Currently, the Android KitKat 4.4 update for the Galaxy Note 3 is confined in Poland but it is expected to roll out to the rest of the world pretty soon. Carriers are known to have the updates a little bit behind, so we expect the U.S. carriers not to push anything out just yet.
