Leaked document shows when certain Samsung models will get the Android 4.4 update
If the document is genuine, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be updated to Android 4.4 in January 2014. The Galaxy S III and the GALAXY Note III will each be updated sometime in the March-April 2014 time frame. Carrier branded models will take longer since each operator will need to test the update for each device. Android 4.4 will make each model smoother and more responsive with Project Svelte, the successor to Jelly Bean's Project Butter.
As usual, with such a high-profile rumor, we suggest you cast a cynical eye on the story.

High time it came to S4. After all its Samsung's latest high end phone.

False. My Note 3 is Samsung's greatest. Glad to see a January timeframe. :)

Though the 4.3 update for my note 2 has already been released in India, but I have not got it yet neither by OTA nor by KIES...but I believe as it is done is batches, so I might be getting it soon..
Question is samsung took so long to update to 4.3, how can we expect it to release kit kat kat in march???

Ha! Where's JakeLee? I knew that the Note 2 would get a 4.4 update in a few month's time.

Sorry I'm late.
Remind me when it's actually there.
Way too many "leaked", Samsung-branded BS.

or if you want Kit Kat now you can just get a Moto X.

No thanks. . I prefer something a little more powerful.
37. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5540; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
the Moto X handles everything beautifully.

w00t to the S3 and Note 2 getting it. That is called support.
10. danwatson (Posts: 102; Member since: 03 Jan 2012)
That would be pretty good. Considering my Nexus 7 does not have 4.4 yet Samsung is only 2 months behind with the Note 3. That is certainly better than their track record.

Sure hope the GS3 support would extend to the US verizon flavor. Still don't feel that much of an urge to upgrade yet.

We S4 people can't even get a stable version of 4.3 yet... we'll see what happens though

How can I worry about that update when I haven't gotten 4.3? I am still stuck on 4.1.2 so givesa care!

Strange that the Mini isn't listed there...

Who cares this is for the international version. They need to have separate sections for US phns and for international ones. Seems like Samsung always waits for update. I know they wanna make sure that they get the update right. Thing is that they already screwed up the 4.3 on gs 3 or 4. I forget which one.

If it comes to my Sprint Note 2, I would be pretty happy. More likely it will probably be the last update for the Note 2, assuming the leak turns out to be true, because it will be pretty much the 18 month mark of the release of the Note 2 and the Note 4 will be released a few months after that.

Meanwhile the HTC one x will never even see official 4.3

If the Note 2 can get it why not the Galaxy S2? That has the same hardware and is the Galaxy S counterpart of the Galaxy Note series.
33. DnB925Art (Posts: 142; Member since: 23 May 2013)
Actually Note 2 is based off of the S3, Note 1 was based off of the S2 The Note series has always been n-1 of the S series, where we have the S4 but the Note 3.

Hopefully the Moto X was a test for Verizon for maybe future Nexus devices on them in the future.

Where is Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and S4 Active?
