Android 4.4.2 XXUFNAD Test Build Leaked for the International Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505!

We first saw a Samsung-created Android 4.4.2 build for the international Samsung Galaxy S 4 GT-I9505 about a month ago with the leaked XXUFNA1Firmware. While the company hasn’t said much about an official KitKat rollout schedule, a leaked memo pointed to the end of January as a possible release date for the S 4 and Note 3. January has now come and gone. And while the Note 3 already received its official 4.4.2 update, the S 4 is still without.

Luckily, another leaked Android 4.4.2 firmware has emerged for the trusty I9505. The new XXUFNAD firmware was originally shared by the kind folks over at Sammobile and posted to the forums by XDA Senior Member kelvyn1995. Just like the previously leaked build, this new leak also lacks the new artistic direction that we saw in some leaked screenshots a while back. However, it does incorporate some of the minor UI tweaks present in the previous build, as well as a few other minor changes.

You can get in on the leak by heading over to the leaked firmware thread. And once you’ve updated your device, don’t forget to leave your feedback in the thread. Are you a fan of these continual leaks or are you a happy AOSP-based ROM user who couldn’t care less about first-party updates? Let us know in the comments below.

[Many thanks to XDA Forum Member Titokhan for the tip!]

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
