Galaxy S3 and S3 Mini will not get Android KitKat Update – Samsung
Its official now. Non-LTE variant of Samsung Galaxy S3 and S3 Mini will not receive Android KitKat update. SamMobile has received official confirmation from Samsung that the device will not get the Android update due to Hardware limitations.
Samsung Galaxy S3 was the most successful and more popular Samsung Galaxy Device. Even with 1GB RAM, Samsung came back with the reason of memory insufficient for the upgrade. Though there are many devices out in the market running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with 512MB of RAM and above.
The limitations quoted by Samsung might be due to Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI being slow on the latest Android 4.4.2 on S3.
However, the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE variant will get the Android KitKat 4.4 update.
