Samsung names multiple Galaxy devices that will be updated to Android 4.4.2


We haven’t seen many Samsung products receive updates to Android 4.4 ever since the new version of Google’s mobile operating system was introduced last year. The Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition was treated to some KitKat in late 2013, and the Sprint Galaxy S 4 recently got its own helping of Google’s newest dessert, but that’s about it so far. The good news is that Samsung confirmed today that it’s planning to update a number of its Galaxy products to Android 4.4.2. Here’s the list of U.S. devices that’ll receive the update:

  • Galaxy Note 3
  • Galaxy Note II
  • Galaxy S 4
  • Galaxy S4 mini
  • Galaxy S4 Active
  • Galaxy S4 zoom
  • Galaxy S III
  • Galaxy S III mini
  • Galaxy Mega
  • Galaxy Light
  • Galaxy Note 8.0
  • Galaxy Tab 3
  • Galaxy Note 10.1
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition

The update to Android 4.4.2 will bring with it several new goodies, including a Location Menu with toggles for GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks, the option to change a device’s default messaging app, upgraded Google apps and a “more intuitive user interface. Samsung says that its KitKat updates will begin going out today and continue flowing throughout the coming months, with exact availability varying from carrier to carrier.

Good on Samsung for sharing a list of all the U.S. Galaxy products that’ll receive Android 4.4.2 rather than leaving its customers wondering and waiting. While it’s not yet known when most of these updates will actually begin rolling out, at least owners of these devices can rest easy knowing that they’ll get the chance to sink their teeth into some Samsung-flavored KitKat at some point in the future.

Do you have any Samsung devices that are slated to receive Android 4.4.2?
