Samsung in the US released a list of devices that will receive an update to Android 4.4.2. While they haven’t included dates on when the devices will receive the update – beyond reminding owners that the update availability will vary by carrier but that some updates will begin rolling out today.

While Kit Kat was designed by Google to run on devices with fairly low hardware requirements, most of the devices listed by Samsung could be described as having almost top of the line hardware. The devices that will receive the update are :
Phones :

  • Galaxy Note 3
  • Galaxy Note II
  • Galaxy S4
  • Galaxy S4 mini
  • Galaxy S4 Active
  • Galaxy S4 zoom
  • Galaxy S III
  • Galaxy S III mini
  • Galaxy Mega
  • Galaxy Light

Tablets :

  • Galaxy Note 8.0
  • Galaxy Tab 3
  • Galaxy Note 10.1
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

If Samsung USA are intending to update this list of devices it’s almost certain that the updates will make their way to Australian devices. Just to be sure we’ve approached Samsung Australia for confirmation but haven’t received a reply at this time. We’ll be sure to update as soon as they have any further information.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I’m surprised to see the original Note 10.1 in the list. I’ll be more surprised if Samsung Australia follow suit when it doesn’t even have the 4.3 upgrade yet.
