Samsung has pressed a list including a number of Galaxy flagship smartphones which will be soon getting the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system update. The list however skips the firm’s Galaxy S III handset, but still no words when Samsung will start giving this update.
Regarding Kitkat 4.4 update Samsung has listed several devices which will soon be receiving updates are Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S4 Zoom, latest launched devices like Galaxy Note 10.1, Note 10.1(2014 Edition), Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Mega 6.3, Galaxy Express 2, Galaxy Grand.
The news appears from Robert Nawrowski’s website, where it has been declared that Samsung Galaxy S III has been omitted from the Android 4.4 KitKat update list because Galaxy S III has only 1 GB RAM.
Isn’t it strange, many devices listed above comes with 1 GB RAM and also the minimum requirement of Kitkat 4.4 OS is 512 MB RAM. However, to much surprise, the Samsung Galaxy Grand which comes with 1GB of RAM and is there in queue for the update.
One more thing I wan to add with this debate, it has been noted that the Samsung Galaxy S III United States variant experiencing the Android 4.4 KitKat as it comes with 2 GB of RAM.
Last year we have seen that the Galaxy S III was facing issues after getting the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, this might be an issue for not getting any update this time. This gonna be a bad time for all Galaxy S III users except US as they have already got this update.
Samsung has also stated that the upcoming most awaited smartphone The Galaxy S5 comes with Kitkat 4.4.2 operating system. This will the first Samsung device that runs on inbuilt KitKat OS. People are expecting very much from this device, Let’s see how much it meets the expectations. The Day after tomorrow you will come to know about exactly what Galaxy 5 has at MWC, Barcelona, 2014.
Reports at the date said that The Samsung Galaxy S III consumers were grumbling of insensitive device, particularly the lock-screen, after updating the handset. Other matter poor battery backup, included bizzare Wi-Fi connectivity, and a system hanging issue that lacks the battery to be pulled out to reboot the device. Expectantly, this would not arrive with KitKat 4.4 OS update.
