Android 4.4 KitKat update for Verizon’s LG G2 now available

Following in the footsteps of the models sold by T-Mobile and Sprint, the LG G2 for Verizon now has the update to Android 4.4 KitKat available. There’s a catch, however. It doesn’t look like the update has been pushed through to the over-the-air system, at least not yet. That means you shouldn’t expect your phone to notify you that the update is out – it simply won’t know. The only way to get your hands...

Sony Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, and Tablet Z will get Android 4.4 KitKat updates in May

That particular quarter started this month and ends in June, and the devices in question were the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, and Tablet Z. All of these were slated to get their updates in mid-Q2, which should mean May. And indeed it looks...

High-end Tizen smartphone from Samsung out by the end of June, Android-based smartwatch in the works

Samsung’s oft-delayed first Tizen smartphone could actually be headed for a release this year. Sure, that’s not very believable, given the company’s track record on the matter and how many times we have so far heard that this mythical Tizen beast was just around the corner, but this time it might just be. No, really. This time it’s real. Or at least that’s what a Samsung executive told Reuters. The South...

Samsung Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III Android 4.4 KitKat updates still coming, new time frame outed

So far, Samsung has only brought Android 4.4 KitKat updates to the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy S4 – its two newest flagships (the Galaxy S5 doesn’t count, since that already runs the newest software version). Naturally then, people are wondering when such updates may be made available for other, older handsets such as the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III. Wondering the same thing, someone in Samsung’s native South...

LG G Pad 8.3 now getting Android 4.4 KitKat update in the US and Europe

Late last month, the LG G Pad 8.3 started receiving the update to Android 4.4 KitKat, but only in the company’s home country of South Korea. Rolling out the new bits to more places in the world seemed inevitable back then, and indeed it has now happened. Owners of the G Pad 8.3 in both the US and Europe can now run the newest version of Android on their tablets. If you’re in Europe, the update may come over-the-air, which...

Sony Xperia SP won’t be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat

If you own a Sony Xperia SP and were hopeful that it would ever get officially updated to Android 4.4 KitKat, here’s some bad news for you. According to a Sony rep, that simply won’t happen. This comes despite Sony still claiming, on the SP’s product page, that it’s evaluating the possibility of an update to the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.

HTC Butterfly Android 4.4 KitKat update confirmed by HTC, “coming soon”

Last month a leak told us to expect Android 4.4 KitKat updates for both the original HTC Butterfly from 2012 as well as the Butterfly S from last year, alongside a couple of Desire-branded smartphones. In the meantime, the Butterfly S has already started getting its taste of KitKat, so what about the Butterfly? Well, there’s no update to get just yet, but the (very) good news for owners of this handset is that HTC has officially...

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 3 finally starts receiving Android 4.4 KitKat update

More than two months after the internationally sold Samsung Galaxy Note 3 started receiving the update to Android 4.4 KitKat, AT&T’s version of the phablet has finally got it. The rollout has started today, so expect your Note 3 to notify you about the update’s availability any minute now (or any day now). Obviously, the update will be staggered, so you may not get it today – or even this week. It’s how...
