Samsung has struggled to update even its most popular smartphones to Android 4.4 since Google announced the new OS back in Oct. 2013. While the software update is already rolling out to the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 in select markets, most Samsung fans still don’t know whether their smartphones will ever make the jump to KitKat. Today, Phandroid  published a list of devices allegedly slated to receive the software push, citing an anonymous insider.

The full list covers a good number of Samsung’s devices released over the past year or so, including the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S III mini, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S III Zoom, and Galaxy Mega. Two tablets, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and the Galaxy Note 8.0, also made the cut, while others like the Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) are noticeably absent from this list.

With Android 4.4 already hitting the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 in some countries, we know what to expect from the KitKat update. For the most part not much has changed, though you’ll likely see a small performance improvement as well as a slightly tweaked UI. There’s no word on when Samsung will roll out each software upgrade, though it could be a while before these older devices get any love – especially if they still have to move through the U.S. carrier approval process.
