It may be a bit on the old side in smartphone “years,” but the Samsung Galaxy S III is getting some love from Sprint which started rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat to users today. We believe this update will actually bump user devices up to 4.4.2, but Sprint’s update page does not indicate exactly which version of KitKat is supplied with this update. According to the changelog, there are no other updates being deployed to the Galaxy S III other than the KitKat update.
The update is being sent out in stages, so it may be a few days before it shows up on all devices. Users can check for the update manually by going to Settings -> More -> System Update -> Update Samsung Software -> Check for updates.
