Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE Receiving Android 4.4.2 XXUFNC8 OTA Update

Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

The South Korean company is now pushing a new Android 4.4.2 update to the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE. As you may know, the LTE-compatible variant is powered by a Snapdragon 600 processor, so if you happen to own this very model you should keep your eyes on the notification area.

As usual, the new Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.4.2 update is being rolled out in phases, so it may take a while until it becomes available for download to all owners. Anyway, users based in the UK are reporting they have been able to update their Vodafone Galaxy S4 with the new software.

The Android 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S4 is labeled XXUFNC8 and it brings the usual KitKat goodies such as transparent status bar, white status bar icons, cloud printing, emoji support, full screen album art in the lock screen, camera app shortcut on the lockscreen, immersive mode, and other features. You’ll also get TouchWiz-specific improvements like minor UI tweaks, updated Samsung apps, enhanced Samsung keyboard, and, of course, bug fixes.

As soon as your Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE is eligible to receive the Android 4.4.2 XXUFNC8 OTA update you should receive a notification message. All you need to do is tap on it then follow the on-screen instructions. You can check for the update manually under Settings > More > About phone > Software updates > Check for software updates, or you can grab the USB cable and check for the new firmware via Samsung KIES.

Samsung advises to have your phone’s battery charged above 50% when trying to perform the update. It’s also recommended to use a stable WiFi network while downloading the new firmware.

Any Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE owners readying this? Have you guys received the Android 4.4.2 XXUFNC8 update on your devices? Please let us know on the comments section below.

    Got my update yesterday evening. I like the camera short cut. Seams to be running more efficient. A few font changes on screen but nothing big. It’ll be a few weeks of digging into my apps to see what it’s really improved. So far I don’t have any serious issues or annoying flaws reeking havoc within my phone. Seems like a good update. Great for s4 users.

  • Sheila Henne

    Got mine maybe a week or more ago, whereas my husband, who has the same phone (different color) and same carrier, has not, maybe because he’s at work during the day…? Net10 (piggybacks on AT&T) GS4 LTE. San Antonio, Texas, USA.
    Pro: better emojis. Con: Makes Honso Multi-lingual keyboard much less responsive and buggy. May have to uninstall then reinstall.

    I received the update through AT&T last night. I like that you can now get directly to the camera function, when the screen is locked. But I’m not a big fan of the white battery icon, I much preferred the colorful icon. I also noticed that a lot of my apps simply disappeared from my phone once the update finished. I own a Samsung Gear watch too and had to reset the watch in order to re-install the software needed to run it on my phone. Very strange, but otherwise it’s running fine.. so far so good.

    Downloaded it for my S4 last night (South Africa). Since the download the phone has been dropping calls and the screen hangs for about 10 seconds after call completion. Anyone else with similar issues?

    I also received my update for my US Cellular GS4 and lost some apps which I didn’t notice until it was time for my next conference call and couldn’t find the Intercall app with all my auto conference call in numbers. The white notification icons are ok and I did not lose the little green wifi icon. Still investigating.
