Sterling Keys

More news in regards to the Samsung Galaxy S5: first there was the release of the root process for the AT&T and Verizon versions of the device and now it’s the impending update to Android 4.4.3. The Galaxy S5 will be see the update to Android 4.4.3 released by Samsung before the end of the month, with the Galaxy S4 getting the update approved in July.

According to a document that was leaked to Android Geeks, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will have the Android 4.4.3 update rolled out to it shortly as all final testing has been completed.  As well, the documents states that the Galaxy S4 is in the final testing portion of the update and should be following right behind the Galaxy S5 in seeing the latest version of Android rolled out to it.

Unfortunately, while this is still just “leaked document”, the format follows the same design as previous leaks from Samsung in regards to update schedules. As well, it is important to note that although Samsung may be releasing the update out to the carriers, each individual carrier may take longer to roll it out to their subscribers. While the release dates for both devices state June and July, it may be another few weeks before they start popping up onto devices.

For more information in regards to Android 4.4.3 and the changes that it brings, check out our previous article on it. You can most likely expect some more small tweaks done by Samsung, such as modifying the changed phone dialer to fit more in line with the Touchwiz experience.
