Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Android 4.4.3 Supposedly Rolling out to Galaxy S5 and S4 Starting This Month
It’s now been a week and a half since Android 4.4.3 was initially released. In the time since, we’ve seen quite a few devices receive Google’s latest tasty treat. Naturally, this first came in the form of updated factory images for Nexus devices, but this was quickly followed up by updates to a number of “Moto” devices. Now, if the latest rumors are to be believed, Android 4.4.3 is nearing release for certain variants of Samsung’s current and previous generation flagships, the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4.
You may recall that one week prior to its official release, leaked Samsung documentation indicated that Android 4.4.3 was in active development for certain variants of the S4 and S5. Now according to rumors originally posted by the folks over at AndroidGeeks, it looks like this update is on the verge of release.
Just as previously thought, the devices poised to receive this rumored update are the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F and SM-G900H) and Galaxy S4 LTE-A (GT-I9506). And according to the same source, the updates will come later this month for both variants of the S5 and some time next month for the S4 LTE-A. The updates are set to come in at firmware versions G900FXXUOBNE6 and G900HXXUOBNE3 for the G900F and G900H, respectively, while the S4 LTE-A is poised to receive firmware build I9506XXUQDNE4.
Of course at this point, these are only rumors. However, given the track record of Samsung rumors in the past and how minor of an update Android 4.4.3 is, we wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung is able to pull it off.
