Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Play Edition Has Started Receiving Android 4.4.4 Update

Yesterday we were witnessing the debut of the new version of the operating system for phones and tablets by Google: Android L. It is only intended for developers at this time. We need to wait for a couple of months to get it officially launched. Meanwhile, Android 4.4.4 update has been released by Goole to fix the earlier bugs what the recent update Android 4.4.3 failed to fix. We know the Nexus devices have already received this updates, but now it is the turn of the Samsung Galaxy S4 , HTC One M7 and M8 One HTC Google Play Edition.

Samsung Galaxy S4 has already started to receive OTA update. So check your device for the update. HTC One Google Play Edition was the first to receive Android 4.4.3 KitKat earlier this month of June, so the update for this terminal should be just around the corner. It is further expected that many devices that currently run through Android 4.4.2 KitKat can jump directly to the latest version that Google has presented. Later, most likely starting in September, these devices could get a preview version of Android L.

But what improvements Android 4.4.4 KitKat update can bring to the device? However, users should not expect significant changes in features and tools. In fact, one of the main objectives of this update has to do with security. Android 4.4.4 KitKat incorporates a solution to a serious security problem detected in Open SSL. In fact, according to experts, this is the main reason that have triggered the update. Apparently, the correction would be useful for us to prevent incidents. Finally, it has also solved some bugs inherited from older versions that were jeopardizing the smooth operation of the Nexus Device. However, it is quite possible that the pointing devices from brands like Samsung, HTC and Sony will also be able to upgrade to Android 4.4.4 KitKat in a few weeks and before Android L makes its appearance on the market.
