Samsung Galaxy S III & Note II to get Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade soon

Galaxy S III KitKat

When it comes to latest Android OS updates, some manufacturers would often give its older flagship device a pass. If you’re using a Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II, Samsung appears not to be giving up on you.

According to a source, Samsung is working on an Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade beyond its current Samsung Galaxy S4 model. The roll out of KitKat for Galaxy S III and Note II is expected to happen later in Q1 this year which is sometime in March. As expected, the new update offers software improvements and probably its latest UI interface which was leaked earlier on. Currently Samsung has started rolling out its KitKat upgrade for the Galaxy Note 3 Exynos version which isn’t available here.

The current Android 4.4 KitKat is designed to work with older devices (as low as 512MB of RAM) in an attempt to close the fragmentation gap among Android smart phones. If it can work with a downgraded Nexus 4 with dual-core processor and only 512MB RAM on-board, there’s little reason why manufacturers are not sharing the KitKat goodness around.
