    I know that the Kitkat update for s3 has been launched already, but my phone is still running 4.1.2
    i tried updating my device by OTA and i keep getting the message "The latest updates have already been installed.

    Here are some details of my device.
    model number - GT I9300
    android version 4.1.2
    baseband version - I9300XXEMA5
    Kernel version
    3.0.31-1287119

    Build number
    JZO54K.I9300XXEMF6

    Any suggestion and ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    You need to wait until 4.4.2 arrives at your region or you can unlock your phone and flash other countries firmware which have kitkat update

    I'm sure 4.3 is available, so you could try using the Kies software to update to that. Or you could use Odin and manually flash 4.3.

    I haven't heard anything about the official KitKat being released for the International variant - not sure where you got your information from.

    I heard they may not release Kit Kat for the international version of the S3.

    I just installed 4.4.2 ota on my AT&T galaxy S3. It doesn't look that different, but it is fast, it's using less ram, and consequently getting longer battery life. It has also integrated Google cloud print into Gmail, a big plus. This has gone much, much better than the last JB update. A great start.

    Good News for Canadian Telus Sgh-i747m S3 users as KitKat 4.4.2 is pushing the update OTA. Shows up as Knox upgrade when downloading. Just got it last night.

    International gs3 won't get kitkat. Only has 1gb of ram. But you never know what Samsung will do next
