Galaxy S5 to receive Android 4.4.3 update this month

Samsung Galaxy S5

Even though Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 running the latest version of Android, it has already become somewhat outdated. Google released Android 4.4.3 update about a week ago. The update didn’t bring a lot of big features, but it did contain some important bug fixes and app updates, which we have covered before. Fortunately for users of Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4, Samsung is already working hard to update both these phones to Android 4.4.3. The precise schedule of when these updates will begin seeding has also been leaked.

According to an anonymous tipster, the Galaxy S5 will receive the Android 4.4.3 update this month. The status is shown as ‘complete’, which means it’s in the final stages of being deployed. It hasn’t yet begun seeding, but it should within the next two weeks. Both the Snapdragon and Exynos versions should start receiving the update around the same time.


Samsung hasn’t forgotten its last year’s flagship. The status for Galaxy S4 is shown as ‘final testing’ with ETA being sometime in July. Do note that this is for the LTE-A (i9506) version of the phone which was only sold in a handful of regions. There is no word yet on whether the more widely available LTE and non-LTE versions will receive the same update.

Android 4.4.3 isn’t a big update as we mentioned before. The two most easily identified changes it brings are to the dialler and contacts app. Since Samsung uses its own custom apps for the TouchWiz UI, the update will most likely be a bunch of bug fixes and enhancements.
