According to a source close to Phandroid, a number of relatively modern Samsung devices are scheduled to get Android 4.4 KitKat in the coming months. It turns out, the South Korean manufacturer isn't being overly complacent, and will be extending the chocolaty love of the new update to devices, such as the Galaxy Note 2 phablet, the now former Galaxy S3 flagship, and its mini counterpart -- the S3 Mini. The list doesn't stop there, however, with the Galaxy S4 Active and S4 Zoom also en route to KitKat land, along with the massive Galaxy Mega, and the Galaxy Tab 7
.0, and Galaxy Tab 8.0 slates.
As to what the new updates will contain, it remains a bit unclear. Samsung did add a lot of changes to TouchWiz with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but initial reactions to KitKat on the Galaxy S4/Note 3 don't indicate as significant changes as some might expect. That said, we have come across quite a few redesigned proprietary Samsung apps, like Life Times
, S Voice, WatchON, S Health
and so on, so those might come in the form of an incremental update at a later date.
