Yesterday was an interesting day for Samsung's U.S. customers. Samsung U.S. confirmed that 14 devices will get the new KitKat software update. The report lacked of information about a date when international devices will get this new update. Today we got a report about the products that will get the 4.4 KitKat update.Polish blogger Robert Nawrowski got a list today from Samsung Poland with the devices that will get the international update. The trick is that not all the products below will make the flip to Android 4.4 KitKat. Some of them will pass to 4.3 Jelly Bean and after this update, they will get the ultimate update, the Android 4.4 KitKat.So here is the list with the international models that will get the 4.4 update: Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, Galaxy S4 zoom, Galaxy Express, Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Mega 6.3, Galaxy Note 2 and 3, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Note 2 and 3, Galaxy Tab 3.8.0, Galaxy Tab 3.7.0, Galaxy Tab 3.10.1.The list is similar to the Samsung U.S's list, but the difference is that this one doesn't show a date when this updates will take place. Many of the devices present in the list are devices launched last year. The interesting part is that Samsung Galaxy S3 didn't get an update. But if we think that this model was launched two years ago, we kinda understand Samsung's position.
