Here’s a list of Samsung phones that will be updated to KitKat

May 8th, 2014 at 2:15 PM
Galaxy Android 4.4 KitKat Update

Samsung has yet to release an Android 4.4 KitKat update for many of its devices that should be compatible with Google’s latest mobile operating system version, but SamMobile has obtained a leaked internal document that lists the KitKat rollout schedule for some Samsung smartphones. Interestingly, the document reveals that the international version of the Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300 model) will not get KitKat anytime soon, as Samsung is experiencing problems – the Sprint Galaxy S3 model has already been upgraded to KitKat though, with other LTE versions of the phone supposed to get it this month.

The Galaxy Note 2 LTE model will also be updated to KitKat in May, followed by the Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy 4 Mini LTE, Galaxy Note 3 Neo, Galaxy Grand 2, Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 in June.

As for the GT-I9300, Samsung’s documentation says that the phone’s update has been canceled due to “unsolved problems.” According to a different screenshot sent in by the same tipster, the international Galaxy S3 model may have a TouchWiz problem, “which is stopping the device from loading system apps,” rather than a RAM problem – the GT-I9300 only has 1GB of RAM, while the U.S. models come with 2GB of RAM.

Screenshots of the leaked internal Samsung documents follow below.
