Samsung has been rolling out Android 4.3 to various devices lately, even older and lower end devices like the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4 mini. But its two flagships are still on Android 4.3, when Motorola and Nexus users get Android 4.4 KitKat to enjoy. Jealousy is inevitable. But thanks to French carrier SFR, we have a possible timeframe for the KitKat update.
According to SFR, Samsung will be rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat to the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 sometime in late January or early February. So around that time, countries other than the US should see the update start to roll out. And of course, the US will get the update later. Hopefully it’s not much later.
This isn’t official news from Samsung, so take it with a grain of salt. For official news, we’ll have to wait for Samsung to announce something, and that might not be very soon. However, it’s nice to think that Samsung may hurry this one up. I’d like KitKat on my Note 3.
