Sprint Galaxy S III ND8 KitKat Source Released, OTA Soon

Just like most other variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Sprint Galaxy S III it still stuck on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Rolling out back in late November of last year, the official L710VPMK3 build has been out for quite some time. And while we already know that KitKat will eventually make its way to the device, many users are starting to wonder when those official KitKat goods will arrive.

While we don’t have an exact date just yet, Sprint SGS3 owners can breathe a sigh of relief in knowing that the time is near. Recently, Samsung updated its Open Source Release Center page for the Sprint variant of the SGS3 to include the upcoming L710VPND8 update. This was first spotted and posted to the forums by XDA Senior Member poit. Then,  XDA Recognized Contributor CNexus was able to determine that in addition to bringing KitKat, this update will feature the Linux 3.4 kernel.

Head over to the discussion thread to learn more and Samsung’s Open Source Release Center to download the source yourself. Naturally, there’s no mention of any sort of update on Sprint’s support page, but we’ll be sure to update you all when the update goes live.

[Many thanks as always to XDA Portal Supporter Titokhan for the heads up!]
