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.
