The Android 4.4 KitKat update continues with the Samsung Galaxy S4 now receiving the new operating system in Canada on mobile network Rogers.

The Android 4.4 software is 414.46MB, and is the I337MVLUFNC1 build, according to the people at XDA Developers Forum. Users should be able to prompt the update manually by accessing Settings > General > About device > Software update on their T-Mobile Galaxy S4 handsets. Currently, there is no change log available, but users should expect the same Android 4.4 KitKat enhancements that have come to other Galaxy Note 4 models.

The Android 4.4 KitKat update for Samsung Galaxy devices commenced in February, and now several Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 models have received the new operating system in various locations and for various carriers. Most recently, the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 updated to Android 4.4 in the U.S, and French carrier SFR has also updated its Galaxy Note 3. But the worldwide rollout is far from over. Rogers also details that the Android 4.4 update for its Galaxy Note 3 model will hit in late March. Thus far, there has been no word on when other Canadian carriers will begin updating their Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 models, but now that the rollout has started in Canada, other networks are sure to follow.
