    Apparently, Samsung is no longer messing around with taking their sweet time to get the latest version of Android on their devices. They just officially shared a list of 14 different Samsung Galaxy devices which will soon receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update. Some of them will start today.

    Here's the full list:
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 2
    • Samsung Galaxy S4
    • Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
    • Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
    • Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
    • Samsung Galaxy S3
    • Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
    • Samsung Galaxy Mega
    • Samsung Galaxy Light
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
    • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
    • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition
    Keep something in mind regarding this, because there is one caveat. Samsung made it clear that this update will still depend on "select carriers." Your specific milage will vary depending on your carrier. For the most part, Sammy has the work done, and the carrier just has to say yea or nay to the update. Here's the full presser below:
