Samsung might update entry-level devices to Android 4.4


According to leaked information, Samsung is seriously considering an update to Android 4.4 for Galaxy Note 2, Note 3, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy s4. These updates however, were expected by the community considering the nature of these devices. The surprising news is that Samsung is currently deciding whether not to update their entry-level smartphones to KitKat as well.

This leaked information goes on to reveal that the company is looking into the possibility of making the KRT16 update available for all its mid-range devices. This update lowers RAM requirements for smartphones to just 512 MB, even though it doesn’t include TouchWiz for some reason.


It has to be said that even though Samsung is seriously considering this possibility, we have no way of knowing if they actually decide on making it a reality any time soon. If they do, Galaxy S3 Mini, S4 Mini, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Ace 2, Ace 3, Galaxy Fame, Galaxy Fresh, and Galaxy Core will all get the update, as they are the only entry-level devices capable of running KitKat.
