Samsung Devices with 1gb Ram will Not get Kitkat update - Confirmed


Recently we posted that samsung galaxy s3 was not going to get any further update . May be it is because of 18 months policy that after the launch of device , it will get updates till 18 months only . But yesterday , Samsung cleared that They need approximately 2Gb or 1.5gb ram to make Samsung kitkat official roms . 1gb Ram cannot handle Samsung apps and Are hanging and giving Force close . This is the reason Why Samsung galaxy s3 was eliminated for getting further updates . Also Samsung is not even giving any updates to 1gb devices .

Here is the message from Samsung Uk, which confirmed No updates for 1gb devices-

“In order to facilitate an effective upgrade on the Google platform, various hardware performances such as the memory (RAM, ROM, etc.), multi-tasking capabilities, and display must meet certain technical expectations. The Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions come equipped with 1GB RAM, which does not allow them to effectively support the platform upgrade. As a result of the Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions’ hardware limitation, they cannot effectively support the platform upgrade while continuing to provide the best consumer experience. Samsung has decided not to roll-out the KitKat upgrade to Galaxy S3 and S3 mini 3G versions, and the KitKat upgrade will be available to the Galaxy S3 LTE version as the device’s 2GB RAM is enough to support the platform upgrade.” – Samsung Mobile UK

 More over Samsung introduced Samsung galaxy ace style with 512 mb ram and with kitkat out of the box .
