Internal document confirms Android 4.4 coming to Samsung devices

Authored by: Sterling Keys — Feb 8, 2014

It’s no secret that all official operating system updates coming from Samsung have their KNOX security system rolled into it. As such, the company has to make sure that the security software is playing nice with the operating system prior to doing any rollouts. A document has been leaked from Samsung that lists all the devices that will be receiving an update to KNOX, and by default, an update to Android 4.4 KitKat.

Among the devices listed on the document, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and both Mega devices (5.8 and 6.3) are confirmed to be getting the update to KitKat. As well, through previous reports from a Samsung rep, the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 will also be receiving the update further down the line and continuing with Samsung’s tradition of officially supporting flagship models for two major updates.

While there is no mention of the Samsung Galaxy S4 or Note 3 on the list, it’s basically a given that these devices will be getting both the latest version of KNOX and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Let’s just hope that Samsung has learned a lesson from their failed roll-out of Android 4.3 to their devices. I guess only time will tell.

  • Hurry up for my galaxy tab3SM-T211

  • I am beginning to think that it is truely comming to S3 and it's kinds.
    They better do it, because of the 4.3 mess, they have produced.
    Some devices are not running good on 4.3 and some are.
    And as I see it. 4.4 would be a last treat for us S3 owners.
    You know.... "Here you go, and sorry"
