Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update Details For Samsung Galaxy S3 Revealed: i9300, i9305, i747, i535 & More

Samsung Galaxy S3

We’ve been telling you about the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Samsung Galaxy S3 and now we have a list of devices that will receive the update, once Samsung starts rolling it out. Fortunately there are a lot of Galaxy S3 devices in the list, so you’re most likely a lucky user.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat should be rolled out in May on the following devices: GT-I9300, GT-I9305, SHV-E210K, SHV-E210L, SHV-E210S, SGH-T999/L, SGH-I747, SGH-N064, SGH-N035, SCH-J021, SCH-R530, SCH-I535, SCH-S960L, SCH-S968C, SPH-L710, SCH-I939 and SCH-S968C.

These Galaxy S3 devices represent almost all of them, but there are some that have been left out. We don’t know if the others won’t will not receive KitKat at all, or they’ve just been forgotten on the list.

According to Google, Android 4.4.2 KitKat only needs 512 MB of RAM to run, so it shouldn’t be a problem for any flagship released in the past few years. The lack or delay of updates it only the manufacturers fault, who prefer to focus on newer smartphones in the hopes that users will update eventually, instead of waiting for updates.

If your device is on the list above, then you can rest assured that it will be updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Until then, you should come by from time to time, as we keep finding out more information about Samsung’s plans for the older smartphones.

The updates are expected to start rolling out in May, which is very close now. If we’re lucky, we might see updates in some areas in just a few weeks. We will let you know once that happens, so you can force your device to search for updates.

Please let us know in the comments form below if your device is not on this list and we will do our best to find more information about it.

    Are you sure that gt-i9300 will get kitkat.will features like smart pause and smart scroll be available? .they are supported because some custom roms hsve it and they are supported. Please reply…..

    I think my heart just skipped a beat!!! GT-19300 IS ACTUALLY ON THE LIST!!!!!!!! THAT HAS MADE MY DAY!!!!!!

    I hope this is accurate information though. That would mean that the GT-19300 will have had 23/24 months of software support which is 6 months more than Google’s recommendation of 18 months. But that is just a recommendation so firms like Samsung can do whatever they want. I still have high hopes for Samsung and I would be disheartened if they end software support and do not release KitKat just like they did with the Samsung Galaxy S2.
