Samsung finally updating the Galaxy S4 LTE-A (GT-I9506) to Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Owners of the Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9506), the day you have all been waiting for has finally arrived. Samsung has started pushing out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to the international LTE-A-enabled and Snapdragon 800-powered variant of its 2013 flagship. The update (build number XXUCNG3) is currently going out in the Nordic region (Sweden, Finland, etc.) according to some of our readers, and is available over the air. We expect it will have the same features that we’ve seen on every KitKat update – improved performance, redesigned status bar with white icons, enhanced lockscreen with a camera shortcut and full-screen album art, wireless printing support, newer versions of Samsung apps, and better battery life.

Samsung has ignored the international Galaxy S4 LTE-A for a long time, but it is good to see KitKat is finally arriving on the handset. Of course, you will still need to contend with the phased nature of the update’s rollout, but it shouldn’t be long before it comes knocking on every user’s device.


Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
