Verizon and Samsung update Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4 Mini to KitKat


Samsung has been on fire with these updates lately. We know that KitKat 4.4.2 was released quite a while ago by now, but most companies don’t support older devices whatsoever. But Samsung is pushing out new updates for old devices constantly, and today is no different. Samsung and Verizon are updating both the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4 Mini to KitKat.

The Galaxy S III was launched more than two years ago now, yet is still getting updates. The Galaxy S4 Mini is a more recent device, but its mid-range status makes an update a pleasant surprise. It’s great to see Samsung supporting all of its devices like this, even if it isn’t the latest Android 4.4.3 update.

If you have either of these devices, check for updates in Settings or wait for the notification to come to you. Expect a new white status bar, Google Wallet Tap & Pay support, wireless printing, and significant performance boosts thanks to KitKat. If you still have one of these devices, tell us when you get the update!
