Samsung Android KitKat 4.4.2 Update: Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4 Mini, and Galaxy Note 3 LTE All get Firmware; No Android 4.4.4 KitKat Yet

More Samsung users around the world are getting the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update.

Currently, Samsung’s “latest” available Android update is the Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Other companies such as Motorola and HTC have already released the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat update to their users, but for some reason, Samsung has not progressed past Android 4.4.2 KitKat, even for its Galaxy S5 flagship smartphones.

The upcoming Galaxy Alpha will get the Android 4.4.4 KitKat, however, and whether Korean tech giant eventually does release that update to its users is up in the air at the moment.

Indeed, while SamMobile lists the Android 4.4.4 KitKat as being pushed out in Switzerland under the PDA G901FXXU1ANH5, the model number of the phone, SM-G901F, actually refers to the Galaxy Alpha.

Samsung’s Android KitKat 4.4.2 was supposed to be the fix to the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build, but it came with a number of problems of is own.

Users reported Wi-Fi and battery drain problems, as well as signal strength and reception troubles.

Here are the countries that are receiving the update for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4 Mini, and the Galaxy Note 3 LTE, via SamMobile.
