Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 KitKat update was originally supposed to rollout weeks ago, however, for reasons that are best known only to Samsung, that never happened. There had hardly been any official details which could hint at a possible release date until recently, when Canadian carrier Rogers released some semi-official information about Kit Kat for the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3. In this article we’ll be covering all of this information, giving insight on said details and clear up most doubts about Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
Even if the Android 4.4 Kit Kat OTA update for the Galaxy S4 has already begun in just a few regions across the world, and at the moment, Android 4.4 is only available for two Galaxy Note 3 models inside South Korea. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, as Canadian carrier Rogers is claiming that the roll out for the rest of us will begin relatively soon. This is supported by various leaked firmwares, including a United States-based AT&T leak for the Galaxy Note 3. Samsung is running against the clock here, as many users are already complaining about the amount of time that has passed since Google made Android 4.4 Kit Kat available for the public.
Currently Rogers is the second carrier that has spoken about said update (French carrier SFR was the first announcing its plans more than a month ago), and in addition to their statement, the carrier published their Android update schedule so everyone has an idea of when their device is getting a new firmware upgrade. SFR also stated that the updates for both devices will roll out this month, but just as Rogers, the carrier didn’t specify a release date.
Don’t expect any U.S. based carriers to talk about the update, as they typically remain silent until the update is ready for launch. The Android 4.4 Kit Kat update for both the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 will most likely be released to the whole world by the end of this month or early March, so the wait is almost over.
