Korean phone maker Samsung has already started rolling out its over-the-air updates of Android 4.4.2 KitKat to both Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 handset versions. According to most recent reports, this KitKat update that we are talking about is available for owners of unlocked Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 handsets in UK only, having a weight 300-400MB size and being able to deliver them several major improvements that many of you are waiting for such a long time:
New Changes for Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3
You should know from the start that one of the biggest changes that users will have the chance to enjoy is that Android 4.4.2 KitKat uses less memory than before, which practically means better multitasking and improved battery life as well, but that’s not all.
UK Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 are also ready for a better lockscreen, a new dedicated camera shortcut, as well as improved stability. And don’t forget that some apps have been revamped as well; let’s take the example of Google Hangouts which combines hangout conversations, as well as texts and MMS, or of the new built-in music player has added support for lockscreen album art. In these conditions, all you have to do is saying ‘OK Google’ and this command will immediately activate voice control on any of Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 devices.
And finally, as our source confirms, KitKat also adds some minor UI updates, such as monochrome status bar icons, so we are sure that you cannot wait to enjoy all these as soon as possible.
Samsung Kies Once Again
As we have just told you, Android 4.4.2 Kitkat should be available to download OTA on all unlocked Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 handsets in the UK. But if the update doesn’t appear automatically, you should manually search for it through Samsung Kies and maybe you are going to get lucky.
