    Recently I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 device from a ebay (Chinese) seller.

    The phone was shipped with Android 4.4.2 version, but there are no Software Update option (Settings --> About Device). Also checked with Smart Switch app there too phone is recognized but no updates available.

    Anyone help me understand why there is no software update option in my phone.

    You can also check to see if your phone is rooted by installing Root Checker.
