Rumored List of Samsung Devices to Receive KitKat Includes Galaxy S III and Note II

Posted on Feb 7 2014 - 5:16pm by Brian

With the massive hardware fragmentation of the Android ecosystem, it’s not very surprising when an OEM abandons a device after it’s first OS update cycle.

Samsung s3

Samsung however is surprising us with its latest rumored list of devices that will get the bump up to KitKit, the latest and greatest form of Android. Even though they haven’t been the fastest when it comes to their updates, Samsung has done a respectable job considering their massive fleet of devices. We have to commend them for giving long term support to devices like the Galaxy S II, which saw updates all the way from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.

Consider the Note II and S3 rivals in the HTC One X and One X+, both released in early/late 2012 respectively but getting the axe when it comes to Android 4.3. If the Samsung rumor proves true, these devices will be the first of their kind from 2012 to see KitKat:

  • 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
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini SM-g730a

You might question the veracity of this update due to the lower-end devices making the list, but we have to remember that KitKat was specifically built to reduce the amount of hardware needed to run a up to date Android build. This would be a great boon to Samsung’s reputation in the enthusiast community and a great benefit to consumers across the entire fleet of Samsung devices. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and we’ll let you know as soon as we do whether or not you will get these updates!
