The Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update has been rolling out since February but there are severe loopholes till today.
It is noteworthy, Android 4.4 KitKat was first announced in September last year but it didn’t arrive for users until November. And while some companies confirmed Android 4.4 KitKat roll out details, Samsung remained mum.
Here are some of the key issues with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update:
- It’s been almost six months since the roll out of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update, the release still remains unfinished. It was believed that the roll out process would be efficient for the United States at least, but unfortunately did not turn out that way for U.S. Galaxy S4 owners. Ironically, after a long time release there are still several Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat updates that have yet to hit the United States. MetroPCS and C Spirestill haven’t deployed their versions of the software. Interestingly, the C Spire Galaxy S4 is listed with KitKat on the product page of Samsung but the update remains unavailable.
- AT&T have announced the deployment of Galaxy S4 Active Android 4.4 KitKat update in April. But the carrier was forced to temporarily suspend the update in order to improve the software. But till today, the update remains in the lab without an official release date.
- There are many carriers that have yet to deploy Android 4.4 KitKat upgrades. Optus, Telstra and Vodafone, all in Australia, has yet to push out a single Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update.
- There is a rumour about the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update. Earlier in the day, it appeared on Samsung’s developer site. The development comes after rumors suggested that the company was testing the update for the Galaxy S5 and that it could be touching down for the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 2, and the Galaxy S3.
