Android 4.4.3 begins rollout to the Google Play edition Samsung Galaxy S4

After the rollout of Android 4.4.3 to Google's Nexus line of devices, it looks like the software update may be beginning to hit Google Play edition devices as well. At this time, our forum member is informing us that his Galaxy S4 is starting to get a notification that Android 4.4.3 is being pushed to his smartphone.


It's unclear still which Google Play edition devices are getting the updates as there are multiple manufacturers that makes GPE phones, including HTC, Motorola, Sony, and Samsung. Our forum member says that his Galaxy S4 isn't the stock Google Play edition device that's sold through Google's Play store, but rather an SGH-i337m model that had been flashed to run a GPE ROM.

On a side note, Motorola announced that its rollout of Android 4.4.3 will happen this week for its Moto X, Moto G, and Moto E smartphones.

Are you running a Google Play edition smartphone? If so, are you getting a push notification to download Android 4.4.3? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks Christophe for the tip.
