Samsung promised a while ago that they will be releasing the KitKat update for some of their mid-range smartphones and for their flagship devices launched in 2013. So far, the KitKat update was released for the Galaxy Note 2 and Sprint Galaxy S3, but no one knows what happened to the rest of devices Samsung promised to update. According to an anonymous tip we received in our inbox, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Android 4.4.2 update is expected to roll out in June.
Unfortunately, we were unable to check the veracity of the document we received, therefore we are advising you to take it with a pinch of salt.
As you can see in the table below, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Android 4.4.2 update status is listed as “testing,” the document also revealing that the new firmware is expected to arrive sometime in June 2014.
Even though there’s no mention of the changes brought by the Android 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, we believe that will be similar to the updates that rolled out for the likes of Galaxy S4, Sprint Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, and Note 3. Aside the KitKat-specific improvements such as transparent status bar, white status bar icons, cloud printing, full screen album art in the lock screen, color emoji support, or immersive mode, the new firmware is also expected to arrive with updates for Samsung’s native apps, improved Samsung keyboard, enhanced security, and better power management.
The document shows that the Android 4.4.2 firmware version that it’s currently tested for Galaxy Grand 2 SM G7102 is labeled G7102XXUBND7.
As you may know, once the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Android 4.4.2 update will be officially issued you should receive a system update message in the notification area. You will have to tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions. Once you’ll hear that the new update has been released, you should also perform a manual check under Settings > More > About phone > Software updates > Check for software updates.
