Samsung’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat roll out continues. 

Some variants of the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Tab 3 and Galaxy Tab 4 are getting the Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware.

The latest Google Android build is Android 4.4.4 KitKat, but that is only out for the very latest Samsung devices such as the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy Note 4 at present. 

Slightly older Samsung phones should also be getting the Android 4.4.4 KitKat. 

In the United States, Sprint are working on releasing the Android 4.4.4 KitKat for the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S5, while T-Mobile could be rolling out the update for the Galaxy S4. 

Some United Kingdom carriers and Optus in Australia could also be making the update available for the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S5 LTE-A. 

Samsung could eventually release the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update to its other phones, but at present, Samsung users will have to stick with a slightly older Android build.
