News is out via a leaked internal document of the Korean smartphone manufacturing giant that the company is seriously considering of upgrading its entry level smartphones to the latest version of the Android operating system.

Now, though the total project still seems to be in papers, it depends on the compatibility of the respective smartphones and does not guarantee a confirm upgrading to Android 4.4 KitKat; the news, however, is much exciting for the users of the more affordable Android smartphone users.  

As per the leaked document, the full list of the entry-level devices being investigated by Samsung is as listed below:

  • Galaxy S4 Mini — GT-I9190
  • Galaxy S3 Mini — GT-I8190
  • Galaxy Ace 3 — GT-S7270
  • Galaxy S Advance — GT-I9070
  • Galaxy Ace 2 — GT-I8160
  • Galaxy Core — GT-I8262
  • Galaxy Fame — GT-S6810
  • Galaxy Fresh — GT-S7390

If the leak from Samsung U.S. is authentic, then the company might be busy now investigating the possibility of the ‘KRT16 update for its mid-range smartphones’. Given the circumstances, the upgrading will surely lower the minimum RAM requirement for handsets to just 512MB as is required by Android 4.4.

But the open source operating system whether can be really rolled out to all or some of the listed devices, only time can say.
