Samsung Testing Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update For Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S4 & Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.3

We’ve told you before that Samsung might be testing the Android 4.4.3 KitKat update for some devices and now we have another rumor suggesting that the Korean maker is preparing to release it for Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A (GT-I9506A) and Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F and SM-G900H).

The new rumor comes from SamMobile, who got their hands on a leaked document indicating that the KTU70 Android 4.4.3 Update has an “integrating” status for both the Galaxy S4 LTE-A and Galaxy S5.

Unfortunately it seems like it’s only going to come on the Galaxy S4 LTE-A for now, but we are very confident that all the other models will be updated too.

Previously we’ve reported that Samsung might skip the Android 4.4.2 for some devices and jump directly to Android 4.4.3 and we believe this might be real, at least for some Galaxy S4 smartphones that haven’t been updated to KitKat yet.

As you probably know, Android 4.4.3 comes with only some bug fixes and improvements, while it doesn’t bring anything new. So don’t expect any new features, as it’s just a minor update, but we’re expecting Google to release an all-new Android version at I/O, which is about one month away from now.

In the meantime we expect Android 4.4.3 to begin the roll-out on Google’s Nexus devices very soon. It was previously reported that it will be shipped as of May 23, but it seems like the company has once again delayed it and we currently don’t know why that happened.

Once we find out more information about the update status for Samsung’s devices, we’ll let you know. We also believe that many other smartphones will be updated in June to Android 4.4.3, but we have no clear information for the moment.
