It’s taken far too long, but it looks like an update to the latest version of Android on Verizon’s Galaxy S4 is finally in sight. Android Geeks obtained a leaked document from one of its readers which points to May 2nd as the launch date for Android 4.4.2 KitKat on the S4, around two months after the roll out began for AT&T and Sprint subscribers. Google has made it clear that the inexplicable update delays will be handled more efficiently in the future, but for now, Verizon customers are dependent on internal leaks to learn about software updates.

Android Geeks pointed out that KitKat began appearing on Verizon’s LG G2 this week as well, so hopefully anyone with a recent Android device and a subscription to Verizon will see similar results in the coming weeks. If you’re not patient enough to wait that long, you can update your device yourself with the leaked software from January.

The full list of devices that will receive KitKat “through the coming months” can be found here. An image of the leaked document follows below:
