Sprint Galaxy S III gets Android 4.4 KitKat update

We’ve got some good news for Galaxy S III users on Sprint. Samsung just released the Android KitKat source code for the Galaxy S III and now Sprint has confirmed the roll out of the KitKat update. The L710VPUCND8 update should roll out from today and though we’re not sure what exactly it brings to the table, we expect the usual KitKat features like improved performance and battery life, full-screen album art on the lock screen, wireless printing support to name a few.

Head to the settings menu to manually check for the update if you haven’t been notified yet.

Find anything new after the update? Do let us know in the comments.

PS: We’ll upload the firmware file as soon as possible.

  1. What about Galaxy S3 GT-I9300??

    • he talked about s3 GT-I9300

      • no he’s not. Samsung S3 in The US has different model compared to the international variant.

        • Yeah, he’s referring to Sprint’s LPH-L710 version. I have it.

    • GT-I9300 won’t get KitKat update. Though some developers at XDA have ported the KitKat ROM from Galaxy Note II and seems that that rom is pretty stable, so if you are in the ROM’s stuff and all you can install it and enjoy the goodies of KitKat. But I strongly reccomend to install CyanogenMod 11(KitKat) so you can taste the full power of your Galaxy SIII!

    Oh wait, i’m on CyanogenMod 11 nightlies and i do ;-)

    • Keep the CyanogeMod. You don’t need that laggy, bloatware full TouchWiz of Samsung!

  14. For all you ask for International S III, Samsung has confirm that Galaxy S III MINI (1 GB RAM) will receive KitKat update! So, how Samsung can leave Galaxy S III GT-I9300 without KitKat update??? And yes, Samsung has comfirm that International Galaxy S III will receive KitKat update this month!

  15. if samsung decided to release the kit kat code to sprint then they are most likly going to release it for the international version, cant say anything about the carrier versions though

  16. Samsung…PLease release kitkat update for GT-I9300 S3….PLEASE!!!

  17. Galaxy S3 i9300 can move Kit Kat as well as i9305,if Samsung do not upgrade the i9300 is not for the amount of ram.

  18. please i9300 kitkat samsung

  19. Please samsung envoyer nous la mise à jour pour le samsung galaxy S III gt-i9300 ….
    Merci

  20. What about S3mini GT-i8190 ??

  21. y porque no le da la ctualización al I GT 9300 porque veo que dice que son para celular que tiene 512 MB y el s 5 etc tiene mas y le dieron la actualización y el s 3 intencional no me gustaria saber porque no le quiere dar esa ctualización

    • Lo de los 512 de RAM es el requerimiento minimo, significa que KitKat tendria que funcionar con dispositivos con poca RAM, el S5 lo tiene porque es el ultimo sistema mas estable, y lo van a poner en los S3 porque saben que todavia muchisima gente lo tiene y al final decidieron no dejarnos atras

  22. When will the T-Mobile Galaxy S3 LTE get KitKat?

  23. How about s3 mini gt-i890?

  35. Please release KitKat update for Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 :(

    Samsung please don’t forget how much of people have GT-I9300!!

  36. Is the camera metering issue fixed in kitkat update? There are 3 modes available (spot, center-widget, matrix). But only matrix and center-widget are functioning. Even we select spot metering camera metering behaves in center-widget mode. In many forums it mentioned as firmware issue. This is a huge drawback of galaxy camera when compared with HTC,LG,sony cameras
