Android 4.3 has recently arrived in Nexus 7, Nexus 7 2012, Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but still shed for other devices. It will also arrive “soon” on HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 versions of Google, with HTC saying it expects developers to push the end of September. So now we can start looking forward to the Android 4.4 release date Kitkat. But when? Let’s take a guess at the end of October or early November 2013, rather than now – previously expected to see Android 5.0 Break Cover.
Google has officially announced a few weeks ago Kit Kat Android 4.4, or at least reveal the name because when exactly the new Android version will appear, and what changes it will bring, we unfortunately do not know at this time. What we do know is that how many manufacturers still have installed Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on their high-end smartphones and tablets, or have updated to Android 4.3 to work.
Brief look on Android 4.4 versions
Android 4.3 came with some minor updates, including better multi-user customization, support for smart technology and Bluetooth keyboard updated. As a smaller version, Android 4.3 does not yet have his name desert theme, dividing the Jelly Bean nickname with Android 4.1 and 4.2. So with a new code name, we can expect Android 4.4, bringing some major changes, but all Google will say at this stage is. “Our goal is an amazing experience with Android available for all Android Kitkat” This also applies to Samsung who have already officially announced at IFA 2013 in October, that at least the Galaxy S4 will receive the update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. This should probably also apply for the Galaxy S3, which is to receive this update in late October or early November. Smartphone functionality should benefit only minimal from the update, and is likely to become little faster and duration can be optimized automatically. Samsung has not yet officially commented on the update for the Galaxy Note 2, according to information from Sam Mobile, Samsung has now started with the testing of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean updates, but Samsung is not really in a hurry to publish this soon. IF you want new features of the Galaxy Note 3 probably you have to wait for 2-3 months exclusively for the newest updated Android Jelly Bean version. That would obviously be a nice update for the Galaxy Note 2 especially since Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is something that comes with better performance, but it also comes with the new Air Command and significantly revised multitasking. This smart phone would definitely benefit most from the update, so it is understandable that Samsung is not really in a hurry. So Samsung is working for the high-end devices to the updates and this will roll out in the coming months. We will of course immediately inform you if the updates are officially distributed and then of course you think of the latest features.
Good news. I have Galaxy S3 and I hope that Samsung let me get a Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update before Christmas. Thanks for sharing this Alicia.
