KitKat update rolling out to AT&T and Canadian variants of Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II

Multiple Galaxy S III variants are on track to be updated to KitKat starting today. The update will begin rolling out to AT&T’s variant of the Galaxy S III in the US later today, and should also be available from carriers Bell, Rogers and TELUS over in Canada. The update will bring the software version up to I747UCUFNE4 and I747MVLUFNE6 on the AT&T and Canadian models respectively, and as usual, will be available over the air and via Samsung’s Kies program (owners of the Canadian model can download the firmware from our firmware section as well by searching for SGH-I747M.)

The update brings over the traditional KitKat features and changes, including better performance, white status bar icons, full-screen album art and a camera shortcut on the lockscreen, wireless printing support, expanded emojis, closed captions, ability to select the default messaging and launcher apps, and updated versions of a few Samsung apps. Also included are improvements to Bluetooth, copy and paste, and the keyboard app, and the Beats Music app now comes pre-loaded, at least on the AT&T model.

As a reminder, KitKat is still not expected to be made available to the international variant of the Galaxy S III (GT-I9300), but it will roll out to the LTE-enabled variant (GT-I9305) and to all the variants in the US in the coming weeks (Sprint already released the update for its Galaxy S III early last month.)

Update: The KitKat update is also available for the Galaxy Note II (SGH-i317) in Canada on all major carriers.

I’m still waiting for the update of my SGH-I317 Note 2 AT&T coz I installed leaked firmware of Samsung update ,4.3 JB and it’s fine so far. I’m excited to try 4.4.2, but this is so irritating. :( When it will be? N7100, Lte(N7105) has it already. I plan to switch in IPhone but I prefer to wait until I have 4.4.2 kitkat update. Haisst. Samsung….Please exert more efforts on fast releasing updates in a satisfying way.

Well it seems that the culprits are the carriers for not getting the 4.4.2 update. My phone shows 1.56 gig ram available, so I don’t think that the problem. Now since ATT, US Cellular and Sprint have updated the S3 we will have to wait to see how long it takes for T_MOBILE (my carrier) to pass the update to it customers. All I have to say is that they will lose a customer if it does not come soon ….. as well as the purchase of a new phone.

My next smartphone is definetly not a Samsung.
Stopping update Galaxy S3 (GT-19300) was the limit for me.

If you had read an earlier post, you wouldn’t be asking. The 1 GB/int’l models have been capped at 4.3 JB due to stability issues
