Sprint Details KitKat Rollout For Select Samsung Devices


Today, Sprint has revealed their plans for upgrading select Samsung phones and tablets to Android 4.4 KitKat. Devices like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 have already started to get KitKat OTA, respectively on February 13th and February 20th.

Sprint now says that those won’t be the only devices that will be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat. There’s no timeline right now, but these devices are planned to get updates:

  • Galaxy Note 2
  • Galaxy S4 Mini
  • Galaxy S3
  • Galaxy Mega
  • Galaxy Tab 3 7.0

It’s good to see more devices get KitKat, since that’s the latest version of Android. But like with previous upgrades to KitKat, these devices won’t see any major UI changes. But you will get the new location menu, SMS in the Hangouts app, and the upgraded lock screen features that KitKat has to offer.

Hopefully a timeline is provided soon for these devices. But until then, at least you know that if you have one of these devices, Sprint and Samsung are working together to update these to KitKat 4.4.
