After successfully surprising the masses and bringing KitKat to the HTC One, Rogers has just updated their “OS Upgrades” schedule with news to bring a bit of joy to Samsung owners.

If you have the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the Galaxy Note 3 you can expected to see OS 4.4 (presumebly 4.4.2) KitKat “coming soon.” In addition, the Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Ativ S will also be graced with the GDR3 update “soon.”

    Its Dimitri! lol.

    Saw it updated this morning. Seems like Rogers is going to roll it out soon but soon when. That is the question. At least they made some effort to say ” coming soon”

    Loving that 4.4 will come soon to the Note 3! Rethinking of keeping the Note 3 instead of getting the HTC M8 ( Or whatever it will be called)

      How do you get these news Dimitri?

    • Dimitri

      Its on the Rogers site. They have forums in which Rogers posted a thread updating it with this info. Been on the Rogers forums for years so i see it before others. The link is posted on the post by mobilesyrup above.

      Seems like LG & the carriers are delaying it. I would have thought LG would have been before the Note 3 & S4 on getting Kit Kat 4.4.

    • Super_Deluxe

      It would be a miracle if LG released an update before its competitors. But I’m just waiting for a stable version of CM11 and if it does come before LG’s update (which I wont be surprised at all if it does happen) then i’ll pass on LG’s update and load that. Screw them.

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like LG still lacks commitment to updating older devices. When they got picked to build the N4 I was hoping that would change, but it never happened. Looks like my wife’s G will be stuck on JB forever.

      Be careful kit Kat not good software
      i hade on my LG NEXUS really sucked
      there no different on gelbeen yes lot cleaner

    • Super_Deluxe

      Please stop spamming this article with your bs…

  • Rich

    I’m genuinely surprised Kit Kat isn’t out for these devices already.

    • Dimitri

      Samsung most likely wanted to test the update before sending it out. Making sure most of their bloatware / programs & such work without issues.

      Then its the carriers that take their sweet as time to update the device.

    • Matt

      WTF did you just write? I want to get in on whatever you’re smoking cuz clearly it’s working!

    • Al Chui

      I think he’s sharing a crack pipe with Mayor Ford. Or maybe he’s Bieber’s Xanax dealer.

    • Dimitri

      Please proof read & edit your post before making a really bad post without even knowing anything & making claims that are plain dumb. On top of that i really doubt u even have the LG Nexus.

      All OS upgrades / updates have issues. Get used to it because no OS or update is perfect.

    • Matt

      I’m sorry for last comments I have made
      in the group just the experience I hade
      guss i here no upgrades are perfect

  • arthurz

    How is it positioned relative to the other carriers? And other countries?

  • teddygramz2060

    will the samung tab 3 7.0 wifi getting the kitkat update too?

    • Leif Shantz

      Yes it will it is one of 10 devices that Samsung put on the upgrade list so nothing to worry! I don’t have any of their tablets. I have a iPad 2 which is 2 years old.

  • Crim2k

    Slow news day?

    • Dimitri

      This was posted 2 days ago my friend. Look at the date. They had a lot for that day & posted this too.

    • Crim2k

      My point is that when it comes to updates, Rogers default setting is “soon”.

      Ergo, this isn’t really news.
      I’m glad I could clear this up for you. You’re welcome.

    • Dimitri

      Every carriers default is “Soon”. You aren’t clearing anything up my friend.

    • Crim2k

      Slow day for you? Disqus was nice enough to digest your recents posts for me, and I notice that you spend an inordinate amount of time trolling people, while calling they themselves trolls.

      At any rate, I’m going to see what I can do about blocking you.

    • Dimitri

      Please do block me! If i troll please do show it to Daniel and Ian. :)

  • Hail Eff

    This is solely the only thing I hate when it comes to Android – waiting for the damn software updates as it is SLOWLY sent to different devices in small sets is beyond agonizing and annoying.

    I know why it happens, but I don’t have to like it.

  • AReid

    With the prices you have to pay to get a “flagship” phone from Rogers, said phones should be at the top of the list when it comes to updates. i.e. Nexus gets their update, Note 3 should be 2-4wks behind.

  • kitty

    Rogers can’t tell me a date, and Samsung Canada gave me a “don’t know” as well.

    Blah.

  • tanya

    Is the s3 getting the update? ?? On the droid site it says yes, what about rogers??

  • kitty

    Hurry your arse up rogers and get us some KitKat.

    Nobody wants your sh1tty bloatware anyways!

  • Adriel Garrovillas

    anyone know if the kitkat update for note 3 is available with Wind mobile?
