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.
