The android 4.4 KitKat update seems to be a very big deal for most android users out there and today there is a new leak that will make all the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and the newly launched Galaxy Grand 2 Duos customers more than happy. A leaked document obtained from Samsung’s Indian subsidy through an “Unnamed Insider” clearly indicates the five devices that Samsung plans to update to Android 4.4 by the time summer comes, out of these the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 are already on track.

Samsung plans to update the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and Grand 2 Duos to android 4.4 starting next month which can be understood considering that the Galaxy S5 will go on sale first. The update may not be coming early but I think most of the owners of this Galaxy Trio will be happy to know that it eventually would. The Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) was rumored to be dropped off from the Kitkat update list and since then it has been a long wait for some “good news”, the android 4.3 update created numerous problems for the Galaxy S3 owners and its about time that Samsung starts correcting their mistakes.

Features of the Android 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Devices

  • Album art are displayed on Lock Screen while playing Music.
  • Camera shortcut is displayed on lock screen.
  • Upgraded Emoji icon in Keyboard.
  • Location service are integrated and more detailed by new Location menu.
  • Default SMS app & launcher can be assigned via Settings.
  • White Icons in the Notification Bar.
  • Wireless mobile printing options via Samsung +HP printers.
  • Performance Tweaks.

UPDATE : On further inquiry about the leaked document having the Galaxy Note 2 listed as SM-N7100 (Instead of GT-N7100) the insider clarifies that the mistake in the logs was the reason for this document to be discarded and hence obtained. This could be possible as such documents are usually kept very confidential and are only leaked by mistakes or intentions in most cases, lets wait and watch what happens now.
