If you’re rocking an older Samsung device and are ready to make the jump to KitKat, the wait can certainly seem to take forever. If you find yourself longing for more details about when your handset will finally see the update, we might just have what you are looking for.

SamMobile has gotten its hands on what appears to be an internal Samsung document that the site says they have confirmed as legit. As you can see in the chart below, at least three devices will see KitKat this month: the Note II LTE, Galaxy Note 3 Neo and the Galaxy S3 LTE. In fact, the latter of these devices has already seen an update on Sprint’s network.


The list also includes devices like the Galaxy S4 Mini, S4 Mini LTE, Galaxy Grand 2, Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3 — all of which are expected to receive updates sometime in June. Now obviously the dates on this list are subject to change, so don’t be too shocked if your device gets an update before or after these estimated dates. Also, just because your device isn’t on the list doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll never see KitKat.

As for owners of the non-LTE version of the Galaxy S3? Reportedly the device has ran into troubles with “unresolved problems”, so it’s very likely going to be left out of the dark, at least for now.
