The long awaited android 4.4.2 KitKat update will be shortly rolled out to a handful of “Non-Flagship” Galaxy Devices in India. We have obtained a freshly leaked document from our insider at Samsung India that indicates the roll out to happen in the present month of July for Five Galaxy Smartphones listed as Galaxy S4 Mini, Grand 2, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3 and Note 3 Neo. The update was earlier expected to roll out in the month of June and as a matter of fact it did for few of the above mentioned devices but it hasn’t sadly reached India yet. This isn’t the first time it is happening though as Asian Countries are considered as inferior markets according to the sales and hence delayed software support.
As you can see the updates have now been finalized and the Roll out will commence anytime soon, so if you happen to live in India then you might wanna keep your eyes on the Notification Bar, or you can even check for the update manually by going into Settings > More > About Device > Software Updates > Update. You can also try your luck via Samsung Kies if you are not a big fan of OTA (over the air) updates. For the features this Android 4.4.2 KitKat update might bring to your device you can have a look below, we have compiled a general list.
- White Status Bar Icons
- Camera Shortcut on Lock-Screen
- Wireless Printing
- Album Art on Lock-Screen during Music Playback
- NFC tap-to-pay support
- Options to set default messaging and launcher apps
- Transparent status bar
- Better stability
- Improved Ram usage
- Smoother Interface Overall
- Samsung Wallet
- Emoji for Keyboard
The updates should spread out to more regions with progressing weeks, so don’t be disappointed and think about the Galaxy S3 owners who won’t even have a taste of it (Sooner or Later), keeping you in a better position at the end.
