Are you the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S 3 or Note 2 device? Then, you have probably heard all those rumors regarding a potential update to Android 4.4.2 before April this year, but there is no surprise if you tend to look at such rumors with a high dose of skepticism. We totally agree with you! Anyway, things are about to change now that we have fresh news: the guys from Android Geeks have contacted a Samsung software engineer and we finally know for sure that both handsets should begin receiving this new update by the end of March. It feels good to see that this info is just as initially rumored, so here we have a few more details for those who are interested:
We want to be clear from the start about the fact that once the Android 4.4.2 rollout begins, it could take a while before the update arrives to all users. And if you actually have a carrier-branded version of any of these two Galaxy S 3 and Note 2 flagships, there are even bigger chances for that to happen.
But once the update arrives, you’ll simply love all the new improvements and additions that this Android 4.4.2 version has prepared for you. You are probably familiar with most of them (at least on paper), but we just want to remind you of the much faster performance, reduced memory usage, wireless printing support, ability to select the default messaging app, updated fonts, tighter control over location services, an updated keyboard and many other features waiting to be discovered.
Who doesn’t want higher benchmark scores for their smartphones? We all do, but don’t be worried if you are the owner of any other Samsung handset that hasn’t received the update yet. The company plans to move quickly for several devices too, taking in consideration that the competition uses the same strategy.
