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.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
