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.
