Sprint LG G Flex and Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Android 4.4 KitKat updates now out
The Android 4.4 KitKat updates keep on coming… to devices near you, hopefully. This time around we’re talking about Sprint’s LG G Flex and Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. Both of these are now in the process of receiving updates to the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
If you own an LG G Flex bought from Sprint, know that the KitKat rollout is coming over-the-air, but it’s staggered. All G Flex units should get a notification that the update is available by May 7. When you get that notification, you can download and install the software straight on your smartphone. After applying the update, you’ll be running software version LS995ZV6. The only new thing about this version seems to be the underlying KitKat update, with no LG-specific additions this time around (not that that’s a bad thing, by the way).
The LTE-capable version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition sold by Verizon is also getting a taste of KitKat, and this is also rolling out starting today.
The update brings with it Immersive Mode for better full screen viewing, faster multitasking, cloud print service support, Multi-User Mode, and a bunch of bug fixes. The full details of the update are available from Verizon in this PDF.
After applying the update, you’ll be running software version KOT49H.P605VVRUCNC2.
