For any old Android phone, the chances of getting the latest version are rather slim, especially if the manufacturer has already launched new devices to 'replace' them. Fortunately for Samsung's Galaxy S3 and Note 2, reports say both devices would get the Android 4.4 Kit Kat update next year.

According to SamMobile, a trusted source and leakster about anything Samsung, the two previous flagships of the S and Note lines are going to have the most-awaited update. 

While the udpate will not be made this year, the confirmation is definitely a breath of fresh air for owners who are worried that their phones would get outdated. 

Both devices are currently running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and the 4.3 update is expected to roll out in a few weeks. 

In addition, the Galaxy S4 Mini as well as the Galaxy Mega will also get the 4.4 update based on a leaked internal document about Samsung's Knox security feature. 

While the document did not mention the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, both devices will of course get their Kit Kat versions ready by the end of the year.
