After successfully presenting its new Galaxy S5, Samsung has not forgotten about its Galaxy S4 model either. After we have seen the Canadian carrier Rogers updating its OS Upgrade support page on its website suggesting that Samsung Galaxy S4 is about to receive the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update, now we can finally say that this is exactly what has happened. KitKat is making its way over to Rogers Galaxy S4 in Canada and here’s what you should be expecting to receive from this 414.46MB KitKat update:
Android 4.4 KitKat and its Improvements
As you can imagine from the stat, the most important change is Android 4.4 KitKat and the improvements coming along with it and the list in this case is more than generous, as you are going to find out by yourself. We are referring to the introduction of translucent notification bars, as well as much cleaner application icons, along with Hangouts and SMS integration. But don’t forget that the biggest change here is that Android 4.4.2 KitKat uses less memory than we were used to and this means just one thing: an improved battery life and real multitasking from your Samsung Galaxy S4.
Anyway, if we take in consideration other previous S4 upgrades, you should expect some Samsung specific changes as well, among we can mention some Samsung app updates and even KitKat-style white status icons, but we really think that you are going to like them as well.
Manually check for it
Android 4.4.2 KitKat should be available to download OTA on all Rogers Galaxy S4 handsets in Canada, but if the update does not appear automatically, it could be worth to manually check for it by going to Settings> More> About Device> Software.
