Sprint Samsung Galaxy S 4

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:


  • Android 4.4 (Kit Kat): The Samsung Galaxy S 4 device will be updated to support the Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) software.
  • Prevention Information alert: Customers should no longer receive "Prevention Information - An application has been forced to stop for an unauthorized attempt to access system in your device. It may be safe to delete an application obtained from an unauthorized route. Check now?" alert messages on the device.
  • Zact Mobile: Device now includes the Zact Mobile compatibility.

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.
