Default [NEWS] Official 4.4 Kitkat will arrived on Galaxy Grand

Yesterday, Samsung U.S. confirmed that 14 devices will soon be making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat. However, there was no mention of when international models would be receiving the KitKat update. Fret not users, as we now have confirmation as to which international models will be getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update. The list is Samsung Poland’s official KitKat update list that was obtained today by Polish blogger Robert Nawrowski. It is to be noted that not all models listed below would be making the switch to KitKat right away. They will move to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and eventually receive KitKat.

Here are the international models that will be making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat:

Quote:
Galaxy Note 3
Galaxy Note 2
Galaxy S4
Galaxy S4 Active
Galaxy S4 Zoom
Galaxy Mega 6.3
Galaxy Mega 5.8
Galaxy Grand
Galaxy Express
Galaxy Note 8.0
Galaxy Note 10.1
Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition
Galaxy Tab 3 7.0
Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
The list is identical to the list of models detailed by Samsung U.S., although unlike the U.S. list, it isn’t clear as to when these mobiles will receive the OTA update. Most devices launched last year are included in the list, with a few notable exclusions like the Galaxy Core. It is interesting to see that the Galaxy S3 won’t be making the switch to Android 4.4 KitKat, but considering that it is now close to two years since its official launch, we won’t blame Samsung for giving the S3 a miss.

It's grand only else 2 would have been mentioned. But still can't trust the same until official word is heard from Samsung itself.

The good news is that this list is even bigger than the US-centric one, with 17 devices on it: Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Mega 6.3, Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Grand, Galaxy Express 2, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, and Galaxy Grand 2 LTE. Some of these may jump directly to 4.4, and others that are running older software versions may still receive some interim updates as well.

I wonder the DUOS(I9082) version of Galaxy Grand will have the official ones.

but sure thing is if Galaxy Grand will receive the official update, it can make our existing 4.4 ROMs more stable.

Also, Galaxy S III wont receive it because of not enough RAM (1Gb), same then Galaxy Grand has the same amount

or RAM (1Gb) though will recieve an Official ones.

I think of two things on this:

1. If Galaxy Grand will receive Kitkat, Galaxy S III will receive it well, worst case, both phones will not receive it.

2. Galaxy Grand (only 12Months Old)is around Google's 18-month rule, while Galaxy S III is almost 20months Old.
