The Samsung ATIV S was the first official Windows Phone 8 device, so its fitting that it is currently being updated to Windows Phone 8.1 in certain regions. The update bring build 14157, and firmware 2424.14.9.3 to the veteran device.

Unfortunately the release is not as widespread as we would like it to be, with reports suggesting it's limited to Austria, and maybe Hong Kong as well. The carrier-branded version of the handset is not getting the update as we speak, but you never know, things may change in the near future.

There's no official word if Samsung is rolling out the latest update for any other regions, but it could happen soon. The best thing Samsung Ativ S users can do is wait for the company to officially release the update. Meanwhile you can manually check for the update on your device by going to Settings > Phone Update, and you may just find the update waiting for you.

If you do happen to receive the Windows Phone 8.1 update on your Samsung ATIV S, feel free to leave us a comment and let us know below.

Interestingly, last month Microsoft halted the Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview for both the HTC 8X and HTC 8S, due to the lack of drivers required for the update. HTC needs to send out the drivers for both models, and will do so with the official consumer update.

So now we know to expect the HTC 8X to receive the update in late October, which should make owners of the phone excited to know that Cortana is coming soon. At this moment, there is no indication on when the HTC 8S will receive the Windows Phone 8.1 update.
