A new leak now offers information on the KitKat update schedule for numerous Samsung phones including the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 mini and Note 3 Neo.
The most upsetting information that comes from the leaks happens to be that there won't be a KitKat update for the international non-LTE version of the Galaxy S III. This development comes despite the fact that Samsung had it scheduled in previous update leaks.
However, owners of the Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy Grand 2 duos, Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3, and the Galaxy Note 3 Neo can rejoice as their handsets will be getting the Android 4.4.2 over-the-air update. All five of these handsets will get their updates in July and dates might differ slightly based on countries and carriers.
According to Phone Arena, the update will bring features like immersion mode, tunnel audio, and the translucent interface style. However, this does not change the fact that Samsung is rolling out these updates to mid-range phones over eight months after the release of Android KitKat.
The leak comes from JustAboutPhones, who have managed to get a copy of this schedule from Samsung India. Here are some of the features that the update will bring according to the site.
