Samsung revealed not log ago, that its high-end Android phones along with a couple other mid-rangers will be updated to KitKat. After we've seen the new software update hitting several Note 3 and S4 variants, now we hear that the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 Android 4.4.2 KitKat update will be rolled out in April - May time frame.
According to a leaked Samsung document (image above), the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 will receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in April or March, along with other Samsung smartphones like Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. As you can see, the document also reveals that the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update was supposed for both Galaxy S4 and Note 3 by the end of February.
As always, we will most likely be dealing with a staged roll out, which means that only some of the Sasmung Galaxy Grand 2 owners will be able to update their handsets to Android 4.4.2 in the specified time frame. Anyway, when you hear the first reports saying the Android 4.4.2 is pushed to Galaxy Grand 2, you should start checking for the update periodically in case you don't receive the system update message in the notification area.
To perform a manual system update check you must head to Settings > More > About Phone > Software updates > Check for updates, or you can grab the USB cable, connect your smartphone to the PC and check for the update via KIES. We're expecting the update to weigh over 300 MB, therefore it's recommended to use a stable WiFi network if you go for the OTA update.
Because most of the new software features that arrived with the Note 3 were patched in the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, the Android 4.4.2 arrives with minor UI changes, performance improvements, bug fixes, and the usual KitKat goodies such as transparent status bar, white status bar icons, full screen album art in the lockscreen, camera app shortcut in the lockscreen, immersive mode, or cloud printing.
