Sprint’s Galaxy S4 is about to get a whole lot better as the carrier appears to be ready to finally update the phone to the latest Android version available, Android 4.4 KitKat. After the kernel source was leaked yesterday, Sprint has posted confirmation that the real thing is rolling out to its subscribers. As usual, the update will be rolled out in stages, and it may take a while until all Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 owners get their official KitKat build.
The kernel source dropped yesterday, which seemed to point to an impending release, and we didn’t have to wait long. Android 4.4 is on its way to all Galaxy S4 users on Sprint, but you’ll have to wait your turn.You can mash the update button if you want, but it sounds like that won’t do any good until your device is added to the update pool. It might take a few days, but calm yourself – KitKat isn’t that far off.
