Sprint customers with the Galaxy S4 recently received the Android 4.4 KitKat update, ahead of most other major U.S. carriers in the United States. Now, U.S. Cellular is apparently on-deck to issue the update in just a couple of days. A leaked document obtained by Android Central says the update is expected to start rolling out to U.S. Cellular customers on Feb. 19 — just two days from now.
The document suggests that the roll-out will take about 10 days to hit everyone, so you might not see the update right when it starts being deployed. Android 4.4 KitKat will hopefully help your device run smoother than ever, and U.S. Cellular’s update will also remove MobiTiles and Daily Perks, though they can be re-downloaded from Google Play, according to the leaked document.
We don’t have much else to go off of just yet, though it makes a lot of sense that additional carriers are going to start rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat to the Galaxy S4. Sprint was the first, which means that it’s probably still in testing at T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and AT&T. Kudos to U.S. Cellular for getting it approved quicker than some of its larger competitors.
