The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is getting an update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat at long last. So far, the update is rolling out in Russia through KIES and has a I9200XXUDNE4 build number. Much like KitKat updates for other Galaxy devices, this will bring full album art to your lockscreen, as well as a quick way to get to the camera on your device. he statusbar icons will be turned white and you should see some subtle improvements in performance. If the update has gone out in Russia, there’s a good chance that it’s also rolling out throughout greater Europe.

The International version of the Galaxy S III might not be getting updated to Android 4.4 KitKat due to RAM, but US Cellular is rolling out the update to Galaxy S III devices on their network. The update carries a build number of R530UVXCND4 and is obviously a sizable download. As you might have already guessed by now, this update is much like other Galaxy S updates to KitKat and doesn’t really change much on your device but adds some extra features like Hangouts for SMS and white statusbar icons. The update is available for download over WiFi, but users can also use KIES if they’d prefer to.
