Apparent Android 4.4 roadmap for Samsung Galaxy devices leaked

Samsung is getting better with their update schedule, at least for the higher end devices. A leaked build of Android L running on a Galaxy S5 was recently seen, showing that Samsung is at least working on the next build of Android for their premier phone. But that’s in the future, for now a list of dates apparently showing when 13 Galaxy phones will receive Android 4.4 has shown up on XDA-Developers.

According to the list Samsung’s top tier devices, including the Galaxy S5 (SM-G9000I and SM-G9000F variants) and the Galaxy Note 3(SM-N900 and N900S variants) are due to see the update in October, with a slew of Galaxy devices possibly due to see the update in November.

There’s still doubt on whether several devices including the Galaxy S4 Mini Duos, S4 Mini, Grand 2 Duos and Grand 2 as well as the Galaxy Note 2 and Note 2 LTE will see the update, with their status still listed as ‘Pending’. This is of course pure speculation as Samsung themselves have not announced anything with regards to a release time frame for Android 4.4.

There’s a number of devices still waiting for Android 4.4 so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Daniel Tyson :Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it. Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
