Samsung usually doesn’t detail when its going to roll out a major update for its plethora of Android devices, despite the fact that it happens to be the biggest Android smartphone vendor in the world. Customers on the other hand want to be kept in the loop, but the company almost always has its own way of going about these things. While the Samsung Android 4.4 upgrade roadmap is yet to be officially detailed, a source “close to the matter” “confirms” to Phandroid a list of Samsung devices that will be receiving Android 4.4 in the very near future.
Devices in this list include Galaxy Note 2 (SGH-i317), Galaxy S3 (SGH-i747), Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (SM-t217a), Galaxy S4 (SGH-i337), Galaxy S4 Active (SGH-i537), Galaxy Mega (SGH-i527), Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-c105a), Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900a), Galaxy Note 8.0 (SGH-i467) and the Galaxy S3 Mini (SM-g730a). The source hasn’t revealed much apart from these names, so its not entirely clear at this point in time exactly when Samsung is going to roll out Android 4.4 KitKat for these devices. It is quite likely that this will be a staged roll out, not all devices will receive it at the very same time. Obviously there’s also the possibility that the source is completely wrong, so we have to keep that in mind as well. For now, take this with a grain of salt.
