Samsung has been updating its devices to Android 4.4.4 in the past few months and it seems that now Sprint’s Galaxy S5 is the next to update. Sprint’s CDMA edition is getting its most recent stable build of Android as we speak, but be patient as usually US carriers take their time in actually updating their devices.
Samsung Galaxy S5 launched with Android KitKat and the Sprint version has been running on it since launch (sometime in April). According to release notes for the Sprint Samsung S5, the update includes behind the scene improvements and little security patches, as well as support for VoWiFi.
Usually, Samsung updates are rather big and, even if we don’t know the size of the update yet, it will probably be sizeable, especially considering the hop from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4. If you are not on an unlimited data plan, you may want to download this update via WiFi.
Rooted or modified phones may not be viable for flashing where root privileges may become void if updates are tried.
