Cloud Search [Q] Official Android 4.4 KitKat on Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-I9082

Well, as you all know the most successful mid-range Android smartphone by Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-I9082 was launched with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean which later got the update of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean along with the upgrade of TouchWiz NatureUX 2.0, the most spectacular Android launcher (the User Interface) in the world and also some incredible system enhancements. It was said that Android 4.2.2 will just bring the end of its upgrade life-cycle.

But, unfortunately after upgrading to Android 4.2.2, most of the users are facing Gallery Storage bugs (Internal Storage is showing used space more than it's total capacity because of the fragmented and buggy Gallery app. Clearing the data of Gallery app fixes the problem temporarily). Some people are also facing very quick battery drainage and some other unexpected problem.

So, for these all, is Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-I9082 going to taste the newest flavor of Android, the Android 4.4 KitKat which has been developed keeping the thoughts of low RAM devices in mind? It has been said that Android 4.4 KitKat can EASILY run on a device packed with 512MB of RAM.

I found some confusing information from these websites. Which one is to be trusted and which not?

Samsung Phones to get Android 4.4 Update

For now, there is an internal Samsung Knox document which was leaked, and which showed a few devices which are going to get the Android 4.4 update, and the document actually showed the devices which would get the Samsung Knox in the coming update. The devices are as follows:
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • Samsung Galaxy Mega (no confirmation whether the 5.8, 6.3 or both)
  • Samsung Galaxy S3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 & Tab 2
The Galaxy S3 and Note II have been facing a few regional lock issues and that is what is prompting Samsung to come up with a major update on these devices, as confirmed by one of the Samsung representatives. But again, the document mentions it is the S3 which has 2GB of RAM, and that is the U.S. version which might be getting the update, and the International users might have to wait and watch if Samsung has made it ready for their devices too or not.
and

Glance 2 (because I found no reason of dismissing Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos GT-I9082 from the list while the crap and totally flop device Samsung Galaxy Mega has been enlisted for the upgrade ): http://crocksz.com/index.php/nominat...id-4-4-kitkat/

Kit Kat can run perfectly on our devices. If you keep tabs on the feed here, it runs well on 512MB devices. Not only that but I dont know if it was o Android Authority or Phandroid, Google stated that this release uses 20% less system resources and that it will be available now for mid-range devices.

Device: Samsung Galaxy Grand DUOS (I-9082L)

Firmware:CosmicCM 4.4.2 + Google Now Launcher.
Tweaks: TBA.


Galaxy Grand (9082L) S4 MODS

Galaxy Grand (9082L) Google Play Experience Edition MODS

Galaxy Grand (9082/L) Nexus KitKat Experience Edition MODS

Nope, they will always prioritize their flagships... even if our devices get the update, it would be months after the flagships. By the time kitkat arrives on our devices, the flagships will get the next android (4.5?)

Cool Good News

I've found in this Website (SamMobile) that, many of the low-end and mid-range Samsung Devices are going to taste the crispy KitKat. So, it seems to be that our Grand is also going to achieve it soon.



According to them, "The list of devices is rather long, and includes the Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S3 mini, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Ace 3, Galaxy Core, Galaxy Fame, Galaxy Ace 2, and the Galaxy Fresh – there are likely more devices on the list, but these weren’t captured by the source of the picture."

Let's see what happens.
