Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 3 Android KitKat update coming soon; TouchWiz status bar in tow

Since most of the Samsung line-up has been updated to Android 4.3, it is the logical imperative to move on to the next version of Android. Samsung has put a plan in motion to bring Android KitKat to its flagship phones – the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. It holds a lot of new stuff, including a new TouchWiz status bar and resource optimizations.


The new firmware has already been tested and optimizes phones to achieve high scores in benchmark tests. The TouchWiz UI has been revamped and is now called the TouchWiz Nature UX.

It has a lot to offer, including a revamped status bar, new KitKat visuals. There will also be a new camera short cut on-board, present right on the lockscreen for easy access. The keyboard will work better in landscape mode and help you type easily with improved finger detection. You will get a look at the official update pretty soon, it seems.
