We've got some Great News for Samsung users. We have a leaked roadmap that shows the Samsung Android 4.4.4 KitKat update schedule, that includes the list of devices that Samsung will seed the 4.4.4 KitKat update to.
As the table reveals the 4.4.4 update has already been completed for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 (Exynos) and the Galaxy Note 3 (Snapdragon) models. This means the rollout should begin any moment now. The update is in the final stages of testing for the Galaxy S4 (Exynos), Galaxy S4 (Snapdragon) and Galaxy Note 3 Neo. It should kick off in November.
The Android 4.4.4 firmware is in development for another batch of devices and should soon enter the testing trials. The Galaxy S4 mini and S4 mini Duos, Galaxy Grand 2 and Grand 2 Duos, as well as the Galaxy Note 2 and Note 2 LTE are expected to get the update by the End of November.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is about to make its international debut and already the company is issuing the first software update for the device. The firmware number of the latest update is XXU1ANJ4 and at 36MB it is quite small.
That's because it's quite specific and aims at improving battery performance as well as overall stability. Galaxy Note 4's battery does excellently with an endurance rating of 87 hours. With the latest update though, you should expect the Galaxy Note 4 to do even better than that.
Samsung is already distributing the update to all Galaxy Note 4 units and expect it to become instantly available as soon as the phone launches in its respective markets. In the UK, Samsung recently announced the phone will be delayed until October,17th and it will cost £575 off-contract.

Android L Official release is coming very soon, We can now take a sneak peak at the Official Samsung Galaxy S5 Android L update. The preview ROM is here, its build on the latest Android L developer preview build. Samsung is working hard on bringing the Android L to its latest "S" family flagship.
Samsung improved the TouchWiz UI on Android L, Many eye-candy Enhancements... from the basic small system icons to the build-in Apps, everything is "almost" Materiel design ready. I don't need to remind you that it's a beta ROM build on a developer preview, it's not the Officially final ROM, yet.
As for the UI changes,Take for example the Settings menu. This is now white, and not blue. On the other hand, the quick settings in the notification shade look very similar to those in Samsung's KitKat release for the Galaxy S5.
The good thing is that Samsung's built-in apps (such as Dialer, Memo, Clock, and so on) have been redesigned according to Material Design guidelines (though they aren't finished yet, as they have no animations at this point).
The new lock screen from Google's Android L makes an appearance in Samsung's vision, but sadly the amount of notifications it can show is only two (compared to four in the stock OS).
