Now that Google has released its latest version of Android 4.4 KIT KAT, everybody owning a Android smart phone want a piece of action of the latest OS. Though the Android 4.4 KIT KAT is said to work on any smart phone Android 2.3 Ginger Bread and above running on 512MB RAM due to its less resource driven structure, it may a little while for all Android smart phones running on 512MB RAM to feature a official version of Android 4.4 KIT KAT.
However some of the major manufacturers have already announced that they will be releasing the updates of Android 4.4 KIT KAT for their smart phones. If you see your device in list be assured that the latest version will reach your smart phone much before than anybody else. If you dont see it, please dont loose heart your manufacturer may come up with a update at a later time or there is always the custom ROM available for installation.
Since the Google Nexus 5 is the first phone to be released with Android 4.4 KIT KAT, rest assured all the other Nexus devices will soon have the latest version on board. It doesnt matter who has manufactured the Nexus but following will be the first ones to receive the VIP treatment.
- Nexus 4
- Nexus 7 2012
- Nexus 7 2013
- Nexus 10
- HTC One (all models including HTC One Mini)
- HTC One Google Play Edition
The next company is Google own Motorola. This company should be off the blocks right after the Nexus updates.
- Moto X
- Droid Ultra
- Droid Maxx
- Droid Mini
- Razr HD Developer Edition
As always Samsung is the last one to announce any updates. It has only said that its Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition will get the Android 4.4 KIT KAT update within 2 to 3 weeks. But rest assured the following smart phones will get KIT KAT by the end of this year :
Note 10.1 2014
Galaxy S3 and the Note 2 might get the update too as they are build with solid specs which can support Android 4.4 KIT KAT quite easily.
The only company left out is Sony. It has release a Tweet saying that it is excited about Android 4.3 and Android 4.4 and will be giving out news about the updates only next week. But rest assured folks knowing Sony, I bet it will be first of the blocks to offer update to all its smart phones having 512MB RAM and higher. But typically first of the blocks will be its flagship models Sony Xperia Z, Z1, Ultra and Mini
