I wonder if there is anything different between firmware that release for each region. I got B2 firmware same as a lot of country but why India has C3.
Some country just get B2 recently but india got C3 for couples of month ago.

Anyone know what is exactly diffrent ? Is it because of hardware different example modem or because of some limitation of law in each country which might not allow samsung to include some applications.

The company provides Firmware updates in order to patch or improve minor bugs in current firmware or to improve locale support.

other counties have eg. B2/B3 as they have a flawless running system so they dont need update.

in india there may be few errors in previous firmware, and other thing is, indian firmware contain many locales with different indian languages,
therefore to improve it, indian firmwares get updated!

the OTA firmware updates which are small (eg. from 7mb to 24mb or a bit higher) in size only contain the changed ver. of CSC branding and few USER un-noticeable changes..

We probably wont get kitkat via an OTA update,
this is what "i" think...
because that update would be around size of 1 to 1.5GB in size therefore it would be released through Online servers of samsung or 'Kies' :-/

KitKat wont be coming in so small package. And yeah, it will be available through OTA only
Cos previously i had Note 2 with Android v4.1, so it had received 4.3 update through OTA only, and size was about 700 MB+.
