As Google continues to make the necessary preparations to release the highly anticipated Android L update on its Nexus devices, the majority of smartphone manufacturers are still working on expanding the availability of Android 4.4.4 KitKat on their line-up. Such is the case with Samsung and its countless smartphones from the “Galaxy” family which, on the most part, continue to run on version 4.4.2 or lower.
Owners of such devices are evidently waiting for news on the matter, but Samsung hasn’t really been able to give a clear roll-out schedule for most of its smartphones. Interestingly enough though, the guys over at justaboutphones have apparently put together a list of Galaxy devices and their alleged update status. If the timetable turns out to be correct, then Samsung should release the Android 4.4.4 update on at least two of its high-end phones by the end of this month.
Leak: Android 4.4.4 Timetable for 13 of Samsung’s Smartphones
As mentioned above, Samsung hasn’t shared a lot of official details in regards to the launch of Android 4.4.4 on its smartphone line-up, but if the alleged timeframes above turn out to be correct, then Sammy has already completed cooking up the aforementioned update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900I and SM-G900F), as well as the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 3 LTE (SM-N900 and SM-N9005 respectively). In light of this info, it appears that all four smartphones should receive the official update sometime by the end of this month.
The next smartphones in line for an update appear to be the Galaxy S4 and S4 LTE, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The firmware for all three gadgets seems to be in the final testing phase and is pegged for a November roll-out.
As for the rest, the 4.4.4 update for the S4 Mini, Mini Duos, Grand 2 / Grand 2 Duos as well as the Note 2 and Note 2 LTE is “Pending”, meaning that development is still in its earlier stages. Nevertheless, the ETA for Android 4.4.4 on these gadgets is still set for a November release, at least according to the source.
Do any of our readers happen to own either one of these smartphones? Are you eagerly waiting for the Android 4.4.4 update? As usual, if such leaks are not coming from Sammobile take them with a bigger grain of salt.
