Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S4 gets KitKat starting tomorrow says leaked internal document
A leaked internal Sprint document reveals that the carrier's version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be updated to Android 4.4 on February 13th. At the same time, the update will also allow the phone to work on Sprint MVNO Zact Mobile. The memo reminds owners of the device that the update first needs to be pushed out OTA by Google's servers before it can be downloaded and installed on the phone.

Sprint customers with the device should make sure that they have the current version of the OS running on their Galaxy S4, or else they could be in danger of missing the update. The current software version is L720VPUFNAE. To make sure that you're currently up to date, go to Home> Menu> Settings> About Device. An interesting note at the bottom of the memo reminds Sprint stores to update demo devices to the most current software version.

If you're a Sprint customer with the Samsung Galaxy S4, smile. Your update to Android 4.4 could come as soon as tomorrow.

The news was leaked over 10 hours ago. Anywho, the S4 shouls literally run smooth like butter given the Note 3 runs just as fast the Nexus 5.

Oh that's nice. PA is pretty much the only place I get my daily mobile tech news from lol too lazy to go hopping around multiple sites. Our S4 is already running smoothly so I can't wait to see how much better it will be with kit kat even to the smallest details (:

And here's to hoping that the Note 3 isn't too far behind, not that I'm not happy with what I'm running but there are a few bugs that are annoying (like the lag of unlocking the device); and I'd also like to be able to turn off lock screen widgets (I don't use them & find them useless).
