The Samsung Galaxy s4 started shiping with the latest Android Os version, Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
First of let me use a short moment to congratulate all of you who has received their Galaxy s4. You have bought an amazingly great cell phone.
The Galaxy s4 initially started shipping with Android Os 4.2.2. This means that all of us who got the S4 has the latest available firmware version on our phones.
There are at least two ways of looking at this.
- Be happy that you have the latest software version.
- Be sad that it not likely to last for long.
In about 10 day from the time that this goes to the pen Google is going to hold their yearly IO. If you want to you can check out this cryptic Google IO webpage.
Although this is merely speculation but Google is likely to announce the next version of the Android operating system. If they continue the trend of naming the versions after sweets the name we expect them to announce is Key Lime Pie.
Others have speculated that the next update will be named Jelly Bean 4.3. We will just have to wait and see for ourselves.
From that point on you will no longer have the newest Android Os. That is until you receive your update on your phone.
- The good news is that Samsung has proven to be one of the cell phone manufacturers who update their phones first. So we are likely to get an update before the Sony Xperia z and the HTC ONE owners.
- The bad news is that if your phone is locked to a carrier like AT&T,Verizon.Sprint or T-Mobile you will have to wait until your carrier have tweaked and approved the software to fit their liking. This has proven to take quite a long time for most updates. Sometimes resulting that the people with unlocked phones getting their update months or even half a year before the others.
When will the Samsung Galaxy s4 get Key Lime Pie.
Or any update for that matter.
There really is no way to say at this point as Samsung has not said a word about this. We can only speculate. Based on Samsungs update history with previous Galaxy s devices there is an overwhelming possibility that the S4 will get the update quite fast after it is made available to the manufacturers.
How to check for updates on the Galaxy s4.
