Samsung has announced it’s plans to bring Android 4.4.2 to a large number of devices. While many of it’s competitors have already rolled out KitKat to many of their devices already, it’s nice to have confirmation from Samsung that they’re still working on bringing KitKat to more devices.

In addition to Samsung’s official list (documented below), we’ve heard from a number of international carriers that the Galaxy S5 update to 4.4.4 will be rolling out soon. And Canadian carrier Rodgers is reporting that North American versions of the Galaxy Note 3, S4, S4 Mini, S3 Mini and Note 8.0 will be receiving an update to 4.4.3 very soon.
