Samsung has sold over 40 million Galaxy S III units worldwide.

Samsung will eventually update all versions of its — for now — latest devices (like the Galaxy S 4 and Note III) to Android 4.4 KitKat, as its competitor HTC is doing with the 2013 One flagship, but a recent report claims that the South Koreans will go the extra mile of upgrading 2012 devices too. Now, before we get too excited, the information comes from “a source close to the matter” who has talked to PhanDroid, so treat it accordingly.

The Galaxy Note 2 SGH-i317, Galaxy S3 SGH-i747, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 SM-t217a, Galaxy S4 Active SGH-i537, Galaxy Mega SGH-i527, Galaxy S4 Zoom SM-c105a, Galaxy Note 8.0 SGH-i467, and Galaxy S3 Mini SM-g730a are all devices mentioned in the report. While you can see both global and US carrier variants enumerated above, the report claims that all these devices are on Samsung’s KitKat upgrade list.

While the information can’t be verified at the moment, some of these devices are definitely capable of running Android KitKat. The question is whether Samsung wants to upgrade these, or would rather prefer to push this year’s and last year’s flagships forward instead.
