Bell Canada Galaxy S 4 Now Receives Official 4.4.2 (VLUFNC1) Too

Two days ago, we talked about how Android 4.4.2 was starting to make its way over to Canadian carrier-branded variants of the Samsung Galaxy S 4. This, of course, started with the Rogers variant of the device. But now, the update has begun rolling out to the Bell variant of the device as well.

The update’s release should come as little surprise to our Canadian readers, as the build that was officially released for the Rogers S4 was compatible with all Canadian variants, including those from Bell and Telus. And thanks to efforts by XDA Senior Member 0mega1, the leaked (and subsequently official) firmware was made available for all devices.

Just as seen before on the Rogers OTA, the update brings you to build VLUFNC1, and bumps up your Android version to 4.4.2. But since the update is only gradually rolling out to consumer devices, you may wish to manually update your device to skip the wait.

You can learn more about the update from Bell’s official support pages. And those with Bell and Rogers S4 devices looking to get in on the update a bit early should head over to 0mega1’s thread to download the Odin-flashable update.

[Many thanks once again to XDA Portal Supporter Titokhan for the tip!]
