When will my phone get the Android 4.4 KitKat update: here is what we know
Google has unveiled Android 4.4 KitKat as a fairly big update to the world’s most popular platform, but question remains: when will you be able to get it on your device? It’s a tricky one as always with Android, but we try to keep you up to date with the update schedule for different devices.

*We will be updating this post continuously as new information comes in. 
Last in: All major flagships have been updated to Android 4.4 KitKat as of the beginning of June (most were updated earlier). We've entered the phase when second-tier and older devices are starting to get bumped to 4.4.
Last update: June - 11th - 2014.

The improvements in Android 4.4 KitKat come mostly under the hood. Google claims that it has made huge optimizations to the platform and its core apps, so even devices with 512MB of RAM (the overwhelming majority of Androids across the world are actually low-end devices with 512MB of RAM) can have a satisfactory, smooth Android experience.

The new Android 4.4 KitKat however still seems to be coming first and only to the top-shelf devices. Here is the list of phones we know will get the update, and we have added a timeframe for its arrival for the phones that we know. Some of the information comes straight from the manufacturer, and update info for others is just based on rumors, so we've tried to make it clear what is the case for each phone.

If you are wondering whether a device that is not on the list will get KitKat, let us say that chances are the manufacturer has either not yet announced plans for the update, or - sadly - the device will not get the updated.

With all this in mind, here is when Android 4.4 is coming to various devices:
