Android 4.4 KitKat might be available for the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and Grand 2 Duos after all

Samsung announced its Android 4.4 KitKat update list last month, and several users were infuriated at the fact that the Galaxy S3 was not included. However, it looks like an official Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Galaxy S3 is still on the cards as a leaked document indicates that KitKat will roll out to the international version of the Galaxy S3 next month. The document, obtained from an unnamed insider, details the Android 4.4 KitKat roll out for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Grand 2.

The release date for the KitKat roll out is mentioned as April – May. It is likely that Samsung will roll out KitKat to the aforementioned devices a few weeks after the Galaxy S5 becomes available. However, there is no way of confirming the legitimacy of the document. There is a likelihood that the document is a cleverly executed fake, but if this is the real deal, it is great to see Samsung including additional devices to its Android 4.4 roll out list. As always, we will inform you the moment we get any official confirmation as to when KitKat will be available on these devices.

Update: As some of our readers pointed out, the Galaxy Note 2′s model number is wrongly listed in the image (SM-N7100 instead of GT-N7100), so it’s possible the image could be fake, unless someone at Samsung made an unintentional mistake.

Hope so or at the very least have a final 4.3 release to iron out the bugs, having said that my S3 isnt too bad after installing the patch, I just have the occasional issue with the wifi and I find the gallery slower than what it was on 4.1.2 (which was a great firmware)I over came this by installing a 3rd party gallery app which is miles better than the stock app (Quickpic)

una consulta y para los que tenemos el i9305 (S3 LTE) no hay actualizacion…???

1 year 8 months ago

ojala sea cierto ya que la actualización del 4.3 así la hayan solucionado sigue con algunos errores mínimo pero hay =) por lo demás pues si se pudiera actualizar asta donde pueda soportar el mobil seria chevere para los clientes y usuarios q compran los productos de esta marca por que confían en la calidad que brindan bueno esperar esa confirmación abril-mayo

The android 4.3 update for the galaxy s3 is very good battery life.i don’t know why a lot of people keep calling it buggy.Maybe it due to some other problem.Nothing wrong with update released for india.

What about Note 10.1 (not the 2014 Edition)?
Samsung should list the devices elegible to receive the upgrade.
I have S4 (already KK) and Note 10.1 (no information about KK), my wife has the SIII mini (no information about KK) and my daughter a Note 3 (already KK).

s3 mini is not a flagship, so probably will die with 4.3

Shortly: N80xx? (still A4.1.x in N8000 since january 2013)

If i9300 gets an 4.4 update, i9305 probably will get it too right? Hope that happens, 4.3 still drains too much battery sometimes

What about model i9190 , samsung galaxy s4mini???
This brand is latest and still at 4.2.2 without any single update for a long time.
Samsung come on, put more people on the updates to work.
