It is update season as the newest iteration of Android is out. Manufacturers like HTC, Sony and Motorola have already committed to rolling out the Android 4.4 update to its flagship devices and Samsung has just joined that list now. According to a new leaked Samsung memo, the Korean manufacturer will start the rollout of Android 4.4 for the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3 starting from January. The memo further states that smartphones like the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note II will receive the update in the March-April time frame, which is when Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S5.
This is very good news for customers of Samsung flagships, even more so for Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II owners as the smartphones will have received more than three major updates, which tells us about Samsung’s commitment to its customers. We can expect smartphones with low end hardware to get support for Android 4.4 as well, since the idea behind KitKat was to make it accessible to as many users as possible.
