It was only yesterday that we obtained a leaked document from Samsung’s Indian subsidy indicating the release dates of the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) and today the same “Very Generous Unnamed Insider” has sent us a screenshot of a GT-I9300 running android 4.4.2. The unnamed insider wrote to us “This is the very first build of Android 4.4.2 KitKat for the Galaxy S3 running on a developers unit” in the email this screenshot was attached with, sadly he added that he can’t include the Baseband Version or the Kernel Version as it can lead in “Critical Internal Action” against him, if traced. As you can see below, there are more than a few things claiming this to be Android 4.4.2 running on a GT-I9300 which is the International variant of the Galaxy S3, also the notification icons are white now according to the KitKat standards.
Moving our attention away from the fact that this is indeed a genuine leak, there is a very big chance that this could be just another Photoshop editing work but considering the amount of Research and Development work outsourced to India by Samsung, there is a fine chance that this can be actually a Dev Unit of Galaxy S3 running early test Android 4.4.2 builds. I personally am not satisfied just yet, though one thing I do know for sure is that if this is the real deal then Sammobile is already on the task to obtain this test build. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope to get our hands on this update soon enough, till then we wait.
