Unhappy Galaxy S3 Not Receiving Kitkat Update, what about GRAND

Hey friends check the following link:

http://goo.gl/rUsI2n

Samsung has stated that S3 won't be receiving kitkat update because Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions come equipped with 1GB RAM, which does not allow them to effectively support the platform upgrade.

Duos also comes with 1 GB ram

I don't have any hope of kitkat update for grand ;(

But the reason given is absurd. 1 GB is more than enough to support kitkat n infact kitkat is built to run smoothly even on 512mb ram devices.

Its not because of RAM its coz its old device and Almost 2 years old and according to Google upgrade will given for 18months and already it has got some major upgrades that doesn't mean that grand won't get update we might get since official never said that we won't get update when I contacted them they say they r testing and RAM kitkat can operate at 512mb of RAM without any issue... but still it's SAMSUNG

i dont think RAM is the real problem for s3. Cus samsung is coming up soon with galaxy core2 which has 512MB of ram and still runs kitkat.
Lets wait and watch.

But still you can see in the post that they're not upgrading S3 and S3 Mini because of RAM
