Sprint now pushing Android 4.4 KitKat to the LG Flex (update: T-Mobile too)


Sprint customers rocking the LG Flex will start receiving an over-the-air notification advising of an update for their device. Not just a generic carrier update, this new software push will advance the curved smartphone to Android 4.4 KitKat. Sprint says the update will be rolling out in stages and may take several days to hit all of its customers.

If you’ve yet to receive any notifications and would like to try to help the update along, you can manually check for the software by tapping: Settings> Systems updates> Update LG software> Check now. If the update is available for your device, you’ll receive a download prompt. If not, you’ve waited this long, a few more days probably won’t kill you.

Update: Not to let Sprint customers have all the fun, T-Mobile is now rolling out KitKat to its LG G Flex users.
