The GS4 on Verizon has been lagging behind in version numbers as far as Android is concerned for quite some time now. It’s good that we reminded you of this with every occasion we had (not that you didn’t notice), the latest including our Samsung Galaxy S 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S 4 comparison video. However, things are about to chance (finally!) as the phone-maker and the carrier finally announced the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S 4 KitKat update.
After applying the refresh, your software version will be KOT49H.I545VRUFNC5, and the platform version will read Android 4.4.2 KitKat (yay!). You can expect a lot of performance and visual changes that come with the latest version of Android, as well as some Samsung additions and changes. These include Multi-Window, as well as a cornucopia of other things mentioned in the articles at the source below, as well as in the following screenshot from the Verizon document. Check for the update manually if you haven’t received it yet!
