Samsung Galaxy S5 and S4 LTE-A might get Android 4.4.3 soon, other details about future KitKat updates revealed
It looks like Samsung’s Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone will be updated to Android 4.4.3 KitKat in the near future. 

According to Sam Mobile and one of its insiders, Samsung is already testing Android 4.4.3 on the SM-G900F (Snapdragon) and SM-G900H (Exynos) variants of the S5. The latest version of Android is also tested on the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A (GT-I9506A). At the moment, the update is being integrated with Samsung’s own software customization on all three handsets, so it might take a while until it’s rolled out to end users. As you may know, Android 4.4.3 isn’t a major update, offering bug fixes and various optimizations.

Sam Mobile also provided new details regarding KitKat updates for some of Samsung’s older smartphones (which currently run Android Jelly Bean). For example, June is when the update should be available for the Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Mega 6.3, and Galaxy Grand 2. As we told you not long ago, the non-LTE version of the Galaxy S III won't be updated to KitKat at all.
