Sprint Galaxy S4 gets KitKat source code, update not far off

samsung galaxy s 4

In a surprising turn of events, Samsung has released the source code for the Sprint Galaxy S4′s KitKat update, which hasn’t started rolling out quite yet. An update’s source code usually isn’t released until after the update has begun rolling out, but Samsung decided to do it before. This means that the final build is pretty much done.

The update should start going out at any time, but until it does, developers can have some fun with the source code. And when the update does begin pushing, it looks like Sprint will be the first to have it in the United States. Unfortunately, there is no official word so far from Samsung or Sprint on the matter.

Galaxy S4 users, are you excited to get your first official taste of KitKat? Leave a comment, and check for updates in Settings and tell us if you see anything!

    @Dimah: Hi Dimah. You’re the only one sort of know. This is off-subject. I had read late last year that Samsung had hired a consulting firm to design a new logo. It was supposed to have been released by now from what I remember. Do you know if there has been any activity in that regard?
