Galaxy S4 Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat Upgrade

Owners of Samsung’s two most popular devices may not have to wait much longer to get them upgraded to the latest Android software. French carrier SFR is claiming that both the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy S4 will start getting upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat in late January or early February. Although upgrades on one French carrier don’t necessarily tell us whether upgrades will happen in a similar timeframe on American carriers, SamMobile notes that “SFR has quite the track record of giving away tentative dates for software updates even before Samsung makes an announcement,” so it wouldn’t be surprising to see both devices upgraded to KitKat on American carriers in early 2014 as well.
