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.
