New Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update release date details have emerged thanks to Canadian carrier Rogers who claims that the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update will be rolling out soon.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update started rolling out earlier this year though the update remains limited to just a few regions and devices around the world. Inevitably, Samsung will push the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update to all of its users, including those in the United States. We’ve already seen the AT&T Galaxy Note 3 update leak after all.
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update quietly started rolling out earlier this week and like the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update, it remains limited as well. Currently, the update is available for just two models inside South Korea though the update is expected to expand to other carriers and regions soon.
At least one other carrier expected to push these updates live soon as well. Rogers, in an update to its Android update schedule, claims that it will roll out both the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat updates in the near future. The carrier uses the words “coming soon” though it does not supply its users with a specific date. Typically, it does release a specific date so it makes the listing extremely odd to say the least.
Rogers is only the second carrier that we know of that has confirmed Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat updates, joining French carrier SFR who confirmed updates more than a month ago. SFR claims that the updates will roll out sometime this month though like Rogers, it has yet to commit to a specific date.
While the updates have now been confirmed for North America, we still haven’t see any U.S. carriers confirm their arrival. Carriers in the United States typically stay mum about major Android updates and their release dates, up until the release dates themselves. So, users will likely be waiting in silence for these two to arrive.
Samsung is rumored to be pushing Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 Android KitKat updates live sometime in March or April and it appears that the software will also be extended to a number of other Galaxy users including those who own the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini.
