Samsung has just released the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 users and it will soon be available for everyone.
We’ve been telling you that Samsung is working on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and now you have the proof that it’s coming. The update comes with a lot of new features, along with speed enhancements and a bunch of other improvements.
We expect Samsung to roll out the KitKat update by the end of this month for everyone and they will probably start in Europe.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with Location Settings, Default App settings, a new full-screen mode and other minor improvements.
The Location Settings allow you to see which location detection features use battery and you can enable or disable each one of them.
The Default App settings bring an easier way to see which app is used for specific actions and you can also change them easier.
Android 4.4.2 KitKat will also make the Galaxy S3 faster, because it requires less memory and it’s optimize better. Your smartphone should be much faster and responsive after the update, so it’s highly recommended to perform the update as soon as it’s available.
Once Samsung rolls out the update, we’re going to get our hands on it and make it available on our website along with a guide to update to it manually.
Make sure to come back to our website, because we will keep you posted with information about updates and everything you need to know about your devices, even if they are a bit older, like the Galaxy S3.
Our best guess is that Samsung will roll out the update in Europe by next week and the rest of the world will probably follow soon after that.
