    Global KitKat update list for multiple devices confirmed by Samsung Poland

    Yesterday, Samsung U.S. confirmed that 14 devices will soon be making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat. However, there was no mention of when international models would be receiving the KitKat update. Fret not users, as we now have confirmation as to which international models will be getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update. The list is Samsung Poland’s official KitKat update list that was obtained today by Polish blogger Robert Nawrowski. It is to be noted that not all models listed below would be making the switch to KitKat right away. They will move to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and eventually receive Android 4.4 KitKat.

    Here are the international models that will be making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat:

    • Galaxy Note 3
    • Galaxy Note 2
    • Galaxy S4
    • Galaxy S4 Active
    • Galaxy S4 Zoom
    • Galaxy Mega 6.3
    • Galaxy Mega 5.8
    • Galaxy Grand
    • Galaxy Express
    • Galaxy Note 8.0
    • Galaxy Note 10.1
    • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition
    • Galaxy Tab 3 7.0
    • Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
    • Galaxy Tab 3 10.1

    The list is identical to the list of models detailed by Samsung U.S., although unlike the U.S. list, it isn't clear as to when these mobiles will receive the OTA update. Most devices launched last year are included in the list, with a few notable exclusions like the Galaxy Core. It is interesting to see that the Galaxy S3 won’t be making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat, but considering that it is now close to two years since its official launch, we won’t blame Samsung for giving the S3 a miss.
