samsung-update-listWe have mentioned a fair number of times in the past that Samsung has taken the extremely broad view of rolling out smartphones that start from the entry level to the mid-range and high end markets. This strategy has served them well, but as we all know most of the time, updates for entry level and mid-range smartphones do not seem to be that frequent compared to high end handsets. At least it has been revealed that a slew of mediocre Samsung smartphones would be on the receiving end of Android 4.4 KitKat in July, although the international Samsung Galaxy S3 will be given the snub.

This bit of information hails from a leaked product update status report from Samsung, citing that five mid-range smartphones will get a taste of Android 4.4 KitKat later this month. The Galaxy Note 2, as you can see in the chart above, already received it in May. It seems that owners of the likes of the Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy Grand 2 Duos, Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Mega 6.3, and Galaxy Note 3 Neo ought to prepare themselves to enjoy some KitKat goodness, although there was no listing of a specific rollout date – chances are this will happen across a window of time throughout the world, so patience is your best virtue in such a case.

Do take note, however, if you are rocking to a Snapdragon-powered Samsung Galaxy S3 with LTE in the US, then you would have already been able to enjoy Android 4.4 KitKat for some time already.
