The moment is finally near for the desperate Samsung Galaxy S4 owners. After Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the roll out of Android 4.4.2 KitKat has begun for the Samsung Galaxy S4 with a model number GT-I9500 as well.
Do note that the update rolls out in phases and may take sometime to reach your region. Users stuck with a carrier might have to wait for a little longer for the update to arrive as they have to get certified from the carrier before it rolls out.
The update brings all the goodies you can find in the KitKat update, including white status bar icons, the choice of using the default messaging app or Hangouts for all your SMS/MMS needs, improved keyboard layout for landscape mode, wireless printing, new emojis support and much more.
There’s no availability time available, but as the update has commenced, it shouldn’t be long before users across the globe gets the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on their Galaxy S4.
There’s no word about the update for the Snapdragon variant with model number GT-I9505, but if the update for the 3G enabled model has begun, it shouldn’t take too much time for the other variant as well.
You can either wait for the over-the-air update to arrive on your handset, or manually check for the update by going to Settings > More > About Phone > Software Update.
