According to a leaked document published by XDA, Samsung is currently testing KitKat 4.4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5. According to the document, the testing of KitKat 4.4.3 update for two variants of Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900H & SM-G900F) is already complete and updates for both variants are scheduled to arrive at some time in this month.
The document also states the testing of KitKat 4.4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy S4 is in its final stage and the official update might roll out at some time in July. Although this document doesn’t mention whether updates will be rolled out of other variants of Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 and GT-I9505, we expect that updates for this devices will be rolled out after the successful testing and release for updates for Galaxy S4 GT-I9506.
This update will bump the firmware of G900F and G900H to G900FXXUOBNE6 and G900HXXUOBNE3 while the firmware of Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9506) will be bumped to I9506XXUQDNE4.
Since the Android 4.4.3 update isn’t a big update so don’t get too excited thinking that you might get some new features for your device. This update primarily focuses on bug fixes and performance enhancements patches.
Although the sources for this leaked document can’t be verified, this news appears to be true since Google has already rolled out Android 4.4.3 updates for Nexus and Google Play Edition devices. Since many of the earlier leaked Samsung documents have been accurate, we speculate that this document will also prove accurate. If so, it won’t be too long for KitKat 4.4.3 updates to arrive for other Samsung devices.
Most of the manufacturers have already updated their devices to the latest Android 4.4.3 version and are eagerly waiting for the Google I/O to finish. What do you think about this update? With Google’s I/O conference so near, isn’t Samsung much too late to roll out KitKat 4.4.2 update for its flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S5 device?
