Samsung is yet to announce when it will be rolling out the Android 4.4 (KitKat) update to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. This, however, hasn’t stopped French carrier SFR from spilling the beans. According to the network operator, the update will be rolling out to the two flagships in late January.

Android Authority was first to spot the blog post and reports, “While Samsung is yet to properly announce Android 4.4 KitKat update plans for its current line of flagship devices – and not only flagship models, since KitKat has been optimized to work on mid-range as well – it appears that SFR France is ready to offer KitKat-related news to its subscribers that own high-end 2013 Galaxy handsets.

“On its smartphones blog, the company posted a short message saying that the Android 4.4 update should be available next year to SFR Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 buyers sometime between late January and early February.”

It adds, “Assuming that the KitKat update does roll out in late January in France, we should see other international carriers release the update for their own Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 versions around the same time.”
