The Galaxy S4 Zoom, Samsung's first attempt to fit a zoom lens into an Android-powered smartphone-style body, is getting an update with the latest Android version, 4.4 KitKat. The new software version will give S4 Zoom users access to the KitKat improvements which include faster performance, a redesigned status bar, wireless printing support, full-screen album art in the media player and a camera shortcut on the lockscreen, plus updates to a few of Samsung's proprietary apps. It's not known at this point if the S4 Zoom will get any of the Galaxy K's new features.

As usual, the update will roll out over various regions during the next few weeks, this time starting in Russia. If you want to check if it's available yet at your location you can check in the About phone » Software updates section of the settings menu.  If you would like to have another look at the S4 Zoom's image quality you can check it out in our shooutout in which we pit it against the Sony Xperia Z1, LG G2 and Nokia Lumia 1020.
