Are you aware of Android’s 4.4.2 KitKat updates issues for both Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 devices? Samsung Saudi Arabia has previously announced that the international variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-i9300) will get the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update by the end of this month, but we all know that things don’t always go as initially planned. Samsung Poland has just reported that Galaxy S3 has no chance to be updated to the Android 4.4.2 KitKat due to that limited 1GB of RAM. And guess what has happened next?
Samsung’s Saudi Arabia new Announcement
Samsung Saudi Arabia has also changed its initial declarations, by clearly mentioning that it has no plans to update the Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 to the most recent Android 4.4.2 OS version. Not anymore! But what’s going to happen with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2? Things are not at all clear at this point as long as Samsung Saudi Arabia stated this model won’t receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update either, although there are other carriers that have already confirmed it as being on the way.
Samsung U.S., Sprint and Samsung Poland Plans
To be more precise, we are talking about Samsung U.S., Sprint and Samsung Poland as well and they have all confirmed the update. And that’s what we also tend to think: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a 2GB of RAM and not just 1GB as Galaxy S3, so RAM should not be an issue in this case.
And the situation gets even more confusing if we take in consideration the speculations about the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy S3 as being prepared for other parts of the world, despite of those previously mentioned RAM problems.
There is no mystery that the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for these Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 devices is based on features from Google, so the carriers have their chance to incorporate their own fixes and enhancements in order to make things work. We’ll find out if they’ll succeed in the near future!
