Samsung Devices Lined Up to Receive Android 4.4 KitKat Update

February 8, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung has in its kitty a whole range of smart phones and you might have played with almost all of them already.

These Android devices get spruced up over the air or otherwise whenever fresh software update come calling. But we need to admit that Sammy hasn’t been very keen on discussing topics like upgrades to new versions of Android.

With the next version of the OS , Android 4.4 KitKat raring to come to our midst, the company hasn’t yet bothered  to  tell the tech world which all of its devices would sport the new operating system variant.

But then, with the tech news space constantly on the hunt for new stuff, a list of possible devices that would be spruced up with the Android 4.4 KitKat version has already surfaced. The revelation comes much to the joy of many a Samsung phone owner and potential buyer too.

Though we all know devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 would of course get the update, there are many others too we would want the upgrade to come to .

Folks at Phandroid have found out the full list of devices that would get the Android 4.4 KitKat update. And the devices include Samsung Galaxy Note 2 SGH-i317, Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-i747, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-t217a, Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-i337, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active SGH-i537, Samsung Galaxy Mega SGH-i527, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom SM-c105a, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900a, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 SGH-i467 and Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini SM-g730a.

The upgrade has already started coming to the Galaxy S4 and Note 3, and initial reviews talk of no major changes in the KitKat platform.

We hear this could be because the already were subject to prominent updates when the upgrade to Android 4.3 happened. The users of these two devices in fact were a happy lot when significant upgrades were doled out in the camera features territory. This apart, the Galaxy Gear compatibility was also offered by way of the Android 4.3 update.

The new upgrade brings with it performance enhancement and also a minor upgrade to the user interface. We are waiting to hear more from those who have been lucky enough to taste the new upgrade.

The Android 4.4 KitKat update could mean a world of difference in almost all departments, we guess.  If you are among those who have received the update, tell us your experience too.
