This is like some joke. Theres no way Samsung is bringing kitkat to galaxy R. One may think that we may get official 4.4, because it runs on even 512 mb ram. But if u know your device properly, it was never incapable of running any jelly bean version IF Samsung wanted. And if u know Samsung properly, they won't bother bringing kitkat to long lost device which no one's heard of except their owners.
Also, that cited website is not a popular one. If this was true, the news would have been all over the web. The list has S2 on it, which is big deal.
I think when they nominated devices, they meant the devices capable and not the ones Samsung chose for upgrade. That's all i wanted to say.
