KitKat coming to the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300 by the end of March?
Roughly a month ago, we told you that the firmware of the LTE-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, bearing the GT-I9305 model number, will be eventually upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat. Unfortunately, we also heard that the international version of Sammy's former flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300, won't receive the KitKat treatment at all. Allegedly, the reason for this is probably the fact that the GT-I9305 has 2GB of RAM in store, whereas the international GT-I9300 edition of the smartphone comes with 1GB on board.

Still, the Samsung Galaxy S III GT-9300 might be upgraded to KitKat after all. The Arabian branch of Samsung confirmed this in a Facebook post after it was questioned by a local user. What's more, Samsung Arabia claims that the Android 4.4 update for the device is scheduled to arrive by the end of this month.

Be advised that the information is not thrustworthy and you should take it with a pinch of salt. In addition, if we take into consideration that the Galaxy S III is already behind the 18-month window for support, the rumors for its Android 4.4 update might turn out to be untrue.

You can check out our list of devices, confirmed to receive Android 4.4 KitKat in the not-so-distant future.
