Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (GT-I9295) receiving KitKat update


Last updated: May 27th, 2014 at 08:29 UTC+02:00

Samsung has started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to the international version of the Galaxy S4 Active, a month after it was rolled out to (and then pulled from) the AT&T variant in the US. The update, currently out in the Netherlands, will bump the software version up to I9295XXUCNE5 and bring features such as faster performance, white status bar icons, improved battery life, full-screen album art (which playing music) and a camera shortcut on the lock screen, wireless printing support, ability to set the default messaging and launcher apps, and more.

The update should soon be making its way to other countries as it rolls out gradually, though it will be a few weeks before it reaches everyone. You can always try to pull the update manually from the Settings » General » About phone » Software updates menu, upgrade via Kies, or download the firmware file from our firmware section.
