In recent days we started receiving a large number of rumors that the arrival of Android 4.4 KitKat for the Samsung Galaxy S3 was imminent. This time we already have official confirmation of the South Korean company Samsung. Such confirmation has given us to know that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will receive the update to Android 4.4 KitKat later this March. This confirmation is great news for owners of this smartphone, which has so far only received the update of the operating system to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
The news was confirmed from the official Facebook account of the division of Samsung Arabia. A user posted a message on the wall of this account by asking Samsung Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy S3, and the head of the South Korean account confirmed the arrival of the update while adding only have to wait until late March to receive the update. The big question is whether this date includes Europe or whether, instead, holders of a European Galaxy S3 will have to wait longer to receive the same update. What is clear is that the first to receive the upgrade will be the owners of this smartphone in its free version, while users who purchased their smartphone operator under some will have to wait a few weeks to upgrade to the latest version Android.
Since the news has been confirmed only in this way, for the moment we do not have any official additional data that allow us to get an idea of the new features that this update will bring. Still think it is quite clear that the first difference is in the look of the smartphone. Is expected to top notifications bar includes a more modern design ( clear and colorful icons for example), and also both the lock screen and home screen should include a renewed commitment to small changes from Android 4.3 Jelly Bean look. In terms of the inner workings of the smartphone we will probably find a lower battery consumption and greater fluency in the execution of applications.
And is that even though the South Koreans have already launched newer versions of the Samsung Galaxy S3 (see the Samsung Galaxy S4 or even the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S5), this smartphone is still a modern smartphone that should have no difficulty moving fluently Android 4.4 update KitKat. While the update of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean brought a bunch of problems for the owners of this smartphone, hope that this time Samsung has learned their lesson and never again release an update that may pose problems for users update their smartphone.
