Samsung Galaxy S5 for Sprint receives Android 4.4.4 software update

Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 for Sprint is now receiving the Android 4.4.4 software update, which brings the G900PVPU1ANI4 build number... Since such updates are usually rolled out in stages, it may be awhile before you receive the OTA notification.

The Galaxy S5 launched with Android 4.4 KitKat, and the Sprint variant has been running Android 4.4.2 since launch. While Samsung hasn't issued a separate Android 4.4.3, which includes a ton of behind-the-scenes improvements, they have all been included along with the security enhancements of Android 4.4.4 with this update. According to the release notes for the Sprint model, the  update also includes support for international VoWiFi - domestic Wi-Fi calling was added back in June. There's also an updated icon for Sprint's "HD Voice" promotional content.

We don't know how big the update will be, but considering the content between Android 4.4.2 and Android 4.4.4 we reckon it will be quite large. Unless you're on an unlimited data plan, you'll want to download this one via Wi-Fi. As usual, anyone who's rooted or otherwise modified their phone may not be able to flash the update, and might lose root privileges if they try.
