In a leaked report from Samsung India showing various mobile due for KitKit goodness. The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is listed in the report that it should get the Android 4.4.2 update this month (July). The leak also shows that the Galaxy S III international LTE version is not going to get the Android 4.4.2 update which is very disappointing.
