What Android version does the S4 Samsung Galaxy use?

I wanted to check if my phone is original or not by checking the Android versions the real S4 implements

It depends on the release date. The latest updates may change anytime, but here they are as they have been for several months:

  • I9500, I9505, I9506, I9508 DUOS, I9515 VE, and Active I9295, CDMA: Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop);
  • mini I9190, mini duo I9192, and mini I9195: Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat).

You can flash almost any Android firmware on any of these phones with ODIN, so an original S4 may have a Marshmallow (6.0) update if someone tampered with the device. Old-stock phones may have lower versions too (4.2.2 mostly) but can be upgraded to the aforementioned versions. Please note that some areas may delay updates a bit.
