Washington: If you are Samsung Galaxy S3 owners, you might be wondering the when the new Android KitKat update arrive, so don’t worry because you don’t need to wait for long.
It has been a conflicting few weeks of reports about whether the Galaxy S3 will be getting an update to Android 4.4 KitKat or not, but Samsung Arabia might just have given us some semblance of an official confirmation that the S3will be updated to KitKat.
Responding to a user inquiry on Facebook, Samsung Arabia said that the “KitKat update will be available by end of this month” – a rumor back in January suggested the same time frame, lending a bit of credence to the possibility that the Galaxy S3 won’t be spending its final days on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
As there are currently no development firmware based on KitKat for the Galaxy S3 on Samsung’s servers – while that doesn’t mean there won’t be some in the future, it is a good indication that the update certainly won’t be out in March.
The Galaxy S3 has already received two major Android updates and is well past the standard 18-month support guarantee Android manufacturers provide, so it would be best to not be too hopeful for getting an official taste of the latest version of the OS on the device.
