Other carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon, are also expected to roll out the update in the coming few days. Although there is no confirmation whether the Google Nexus 4 will also be receiving an Android KiKat 4.4.3 update, the two latest Android smartphones — Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, are likely to receive the updates in the coming few days.
We don’t have any confirmed dates or even an estimated time slot, Samsung will also be rolling out the new KitKat 4.4.3 update for its Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 devices. But as expected Galaxy S5, which has been packed with Android 4.4.2 running on it, will first receive the update in the coming few days. Possibilities are such that the company may delay the update for Samsung Galaxy S4 for even few months.
