Android 4.4 KitKat finally coming to the Samsung Galaxy S3 next month?

Samsung Galaxy S3 owners have been distinctly unimpressed at their handset being left off the KitKat upgrade slate thus far – but that could all be about to change, at least if the latest piece of leakage turns out to be true.

According to a leaked document spotted by Sam Mobile, the international version of the Galaxy S3 will be getting Android 4.4 in April (through May – so hopefully April for UK S3 owners).

The upgrade has certainly taken its time getting here – but such is Android. Also, as a Sam Mobile reader spotted, there is a chance that the photographed document is a fake, as it has the Galaxy Note 2’s model number wrong. Unless a Samsung employee made a mistake here, which isn’t unheard of in the mobile world.

And yes – the Galaxy Note 2 is also on this list as well, with the same upgrade schedule as the Galaxy S3 (next month through May).

Let’s just hope that this one is kosher – the S3 and Note 2 KitKat upgrades have been confirmed for the US, so there should be no reason why they shouldn’t be coming to the UK before long.
