The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 were the two flagships of Samsung of the year 2013. Two high-quality phones, whose update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow is not only not confirmed, but may never arrive. New data gives more information about the update, although they do not confirm whether or not the new version will be released.
Update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
We have already talked about the new update information for the different Samsung smartphones. The information about the updates of the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 was especially relevant. However, we have not discussed the information about the update of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S4, because that information did not confirm the release of the update. In fact, the update may never actually be released. The only thing we know is that the firmware based on the new version of the operating system for these two smartphones has not been approved. And that leaves us two options. If it has not been approved, a new firmware may need to be released that does receive approval before the update can be released. The other option is to cancel the update permanently.
Will they update or not update?
But it is not clear whether they will update or not. Of course, the fact that the firmware has not been approved is not a positive thing, and does not give hope as to whether the update will arrive, quite the opposite. However, it should also be noted that the update has not yet been canceled. Yes, this is the case with the Samsung Galaxy J1. Its update has been definitively canceled, and the fact that this is not the case with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 gives hope that an update will arrive. Although, of course, there is also the possibility that the update has not been canceled yet, but it will be canceled in the future. In any case, the Samsung Galaxy S5 would not receive the update until April 2016. That is, the update for these two smartphones would come later. If we take into account that they were launched in 2013, it is likely that they will not receive an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
