Samsung’s flagship device, Samsung Galaxy S5 has been receiving the Android KitKat 4.4.4 update in the US for a while. Verizon was the first carrier to roll out the Android KitKat 4.4.4 for its user in US but now Sprint has also joined the ranks and released the firmware for their users. Spring Samsung Galaxy S5 Android KitKat 4.4.4 update is now available in form of an OTA (Over-The-Air) update.
As you very well now that Samsung Galaxy was launched six months ago with Android 4.4.2 out-of-the-box. Samsung Galaxy S5 has leapfrogged the Android KitKat 4.4.3 update and is now receiving the Android 4.4.4 directly. While Sprint’s official support page for the Galaxy S5 says that the update was released on September 24th, we haven’t heard from very few people that the update has arrived on your device. Nevertheless, as the support page says, we have an OTA update on our way.
This new update will bring international VoWiFi features, a HD voice icon, security patches, and all the goodies that Android KitKat 4.4.4 offers.
As this update is going to be released as an OTA update, the update will be rolled out in gradual steps. This means that it might be a while until the update arrives on your device. When the update is ready to be delivered on your device, you will receive an official OTA update notification.
However, you can always check for the software update menu on your device to check if the update is ready for your device. Just go to Settings > About phone and check for software update yourself.
Once you have received the official OTA notification, click on the notification to download and install the firmware on your device.
