Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Mega among Samsung devices getting KitKat


There has been widespread speculation as to whether Samsung will extend its support for its flagship devices launched in the year 2012 i.e the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II and others launched as late as the period between March and May 2013 like the Galaxy S4 mini and the monstrous Galaxy Mega.

Making the cut is the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Samsung’s tablet from last year’s Galaxy Tab 3 lineup.

It is worth noting that this is simply the devices that carrier Sprint has in store and will be updating but there should be other smartphones and tablets that will see the 4.4 update that Sprint may not have in stock. These include the 2013 tablet lineup including the Galaxy Galaxy 10.1 2014 and the other Galaxy Tab 3 models. With carriers famous for not being the quick ones to approve updates for devices sold under their wings, it is all but confirmed that the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III and many more members of the Galaxy family are in line to get their last firmware update in Android 4.4.

The update will be lost on the users though thanks to Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and only the camera shortcut on the reworked lock screen will be visible. For those who dig deeper, features like screen recording will also be available.

We don’t have possible dates it is pretty much given that the updates will start rolling out when the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 worldwide KitKat rollout currently in progress, is done.
