If you own a Samsung Galaxy S5, we have some good news for you. According to Leaked Road Map above, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is supposed to receive the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update this month.
As seen Leaked Road Map above, the testing phase of Android 4.4.4 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 has completed and is to hit the Samsung Galaxy S5 later this month. It also reveals that the Android 4.4.4 update will be rolled out for both the Asian Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900I) and the European Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) versions. The unlocked models will receive the new update, and as carriers tend to further test new firmwares before pushing them out they might add further delay to the Android 4.4.4 Update.
Since the Samsung Galaxy S5 Android 4.4.4 update is supposed to hit the devices this month (October), You should remember these things if you would like to Install Android 4.4.4 KitKat on your Samsung Galaxy S5.

The leaked road map doesn’t mention the changes the update will bring to the device. And since the update is from Android 4.4.2 to Android 4.4.4 update. The update will most likely just patch bugs, improve security and improve performance or might come with some bugs too.
The update might exceed 300 MB in download size, so we recommended to download the update using a stable WiFi connection.
