Samsung rolls out Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Galaxy S4 non-LTE version


Samsung has started rolling its Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to Galaxy S4 non-LTE units which carries the model number (GT-I9500). If you’re using the 4G LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505), you might need to wait a little longer. The new update brings the latest KitKat goodies including UI changes as well as improvements on their native apps. A camera shortcut has been added on the lockscreen and the keyboard for landscape mode is reported to have been improved for faster typing.

At the moment the KitKat update is rolling out in phases with Russian and Indian units reported to have received it already. It shouldn’t take too long before it reaches our official Malaysian units. The update would be pushed directly to the phone Over the Air (OTA) or it can be downloaded manually using Samsung Kies 3 through your computer. Like the recent Galaxy Note 3 KitKat update, we recommend doing a full backup and perform a full factory reset if your phone is giving you problems after the update.
