Samsung US announces KitKat update plans, rollout starts today

We have some great news for the Galaxy users in the USA! Samsung has announced the list of devices which will be updated with Android 4.4 KitKat. More than 15 Galaxy smartphones, phablets and tablets will get the KitKat treatment over the upcoming months.

Samsung is developing Android 4.4 KitKat firmware for these smartphones:
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 mini
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Samsung Galaxy S III mini
  • Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
  • Samsung Galaxy Light
And here is the list of the KitKat compatible slates:
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
The Android 4.4 KitKat firmware will speed up your Galaxy device, bring you new Hangout app which you can make the default messaging app, new location menu, other UI enhancements (new icons, monochrome status icons, etc.). We hope the Galaxy tablets will also get the new Magazine UX, which we really liked.
The availability and launch date will vary by carrier, but eventually all those devices will end up with update notifications. The official roll out starts today, probably with the most recent devices, and the entire update process should take a few months to complete.
