No KitKat Update For Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) and Galaxy S3 Mini: Officially Confirmed

Very disappointing my friends! very disappointing... Finally all that long wait come to an end in great disappointment (including mine).

Why?

Samsung officially confirmed that there will not be any Android KitKat 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) and Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. The reason they are saying is that the hardware of both the phones are not capable of supporting this new firmware from Google.

Have a look at the official statement from Samsung regarding this below;

“In order to facilitate an effective upgrade on the Google platform, various hardware performances such as the memory (RAM, ROM, etc.), multi-tasking capabilities, and display must meet certain technical expectations. The Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions come equipped with 1GB RAM, which does not allow them to effectively support the platform upgrade. As a result of the Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions’ hardware limitation, they cannot effectively support the platform upgrade while continuing to provide the best consumer experience. Samsung has decided not to roll-out the KitKat upgrade to Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions, and the KitKat upgrade will be available to the Galaxy S3 LTE version as the device’s 2GB RAM is enough to support the platform upgrade.” – Samsung Mobile UK
