Google’s launch of Android 4.4 KitKat is already 7 months old, and it isn’t until now that we’re seeing most OEMs update their smartphones to the latest and greatest version of the operating system. Such is the case of Samsung, which has done a decent job this year with updates, but not as good as OEMs like Sony and HTC. Still, we’ve seen the leaked time-lines for the update, and we’re now seeing some of last-year’s models getting the update.
Today Samsung has officially launched Android 4.4.2 KitKat for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. This ruggedized variant of last-year’s Galaxy S4 has received a lot of praise, especially in our review, and it’s great to see that it finally joins the list of Samsung devices getting updated. Now that said, this update is only available for the International variant of the smartphone. Those of you who got this device as an AT&T exclusive will still have to wait to get the goods.
Obviously it takes some time for all devices to receive their updates, so just keep an eye out, as it should reach your compatible device soon.
