Samsung's plans for updating its high-end tier of smartphones have already been unveiled and we know the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S4 are getting Android 4.4 KitKat in January. As it turns out, though, the manufacturer is considering also bringing the latest version of Android to its more affordable droids.
A leaked internal document shows that Samsung is investigating the Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S3 mini, Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Core, Galaxy Fame, Galaxy Ace 2 and the Galaxy Fresh to see if they are capable of running KitKat smoothly. As you might known the latest iteration of the Google OS lowers the minimum RAM requirement to just 512MB, but that's not including the custom TouchWiz skin that Samsung preinstalls on its smartphone.
Mind you, as per the leaked slide, Samsung is just investigating the compatibility and hasn't officially announced any firm plans.
Despite this, the news is great for owners of entry-level Samsung phones. Sony is also considering smartphones such as the Sony Xperia SP and Xperia ZR.
