The Samsung Galaxy S 4 KitKat update process begins! Sprint today announced a new update for its version of the Galaxy S 4 that bumps the device up to Android 4.4.2, making it the first U.S. carrier to upgrade its GS4 to KitKat. The update brings Sprint's Galaxy S 4 up to software version L720VPUFNAE and includes the following tweaks:
Owners of the Galaxy S 4 may have had to wait a tad longer to sink their teeth into KitKat than the folks that are rocking 2013's other major flagship Android phone, the HTC One, but thankfully the added wait wasn't that long. Here's to hoping that the Galaxy S 4 Android 4.4 update on other carriers isn't too far off.
Sprint says that the Android 4.4 update for its version of the Galaxy S 4 will begin rolling out in phases today, Feb. 13, and will continue to push until March 9. To check for the update manually, you can head into Menu > Settings > More > System Update > Update Samsung Software > Check now.
