Leave a Comment
Samsung users have been waiting for so long for 4.4 Kitkat update. Well, the wait is over for some of the devices. So, you might be wondering whether your device is there or not in the update list. Thanks, to an internal document that has been obtained from Samsung itself.
Samsung always focuses on new devices and updates and forgets about their old devices. But this time, not for every old device but Yes some of them will finally get the 4.4. Kitkat update. The most awaited update starts rolling on devices till this coming June.
The 4.4 Kitkat update provides a number of innovative, easy-to-use features that enhance the user experience, including a more intuitive user interface, enhanced messaging capabilities and updated applications:
*. Location Menu: An integrated location menu enables users to easily activate GPS, Bluetooth, Mobile Data, and Wi-Fi etc.
*. Enhanced Messaging: Enables users to choose between Messages or Hangouts as their preferred default messaging application.
*. Upgraded Google Mobile Service™ apps: Users can automatically backup photos and videos and can open, view and share Google Docs and files.
Note: The above features may vary as updates are confirmed or released!
The documents also tell that we didn’t hope for – The Galaxy SIII (GT-I9300) isn’t getting Kitkat, due to “unresolved problems”. We guess the problem might be that of the device has only 1GB of RAM (LTE and US models with 2GB RAM)
Sources say that Samsung has started testing 4.4.3 for the Galaxy S5 and, now it’s possible that some devices may directly skip to 4.4.3 update rather getting 4.4.2. But, it tells at the possibility that the updates will take time to arrive.
Some of the devices like Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note 3 Neo have already got the new update of 4.4.2. Samsung is working on the update for Galaxy S3 but might take some time as it seems like Samsung is having a bit of trouble implementing its TouchWiz applications, which is stopping the device from loading system apps. This clears that the RAM is not an issue with the Galaxy S3. For now, the Samsung’s Dev team has cancelled the update for Galaxy S3. As soon as there are some news for S3 we will update it. So, stay tuned.
