New features on the Galaxy Mega 6.3 that came with the KitKat update noted by the report includes:
- faster performance;
- white status bar icons;
- better battery life;
- full-screen mode for album art when playing music;
- camera shortcut on the lock screen,
- support for wireless printing and
- support for setting default messaging and launcher apps.
The Android 4.4 KitKat update for Galaxy Mega 6.3 users outside Russia should also start rolling out over the course of the next few weeks.
Notably, a recent report had suggested that the Galaxy Mega 6.3 was undergoing final KitKat build-testing and should receive the update in June. As the leak seems to be true now, we can expect that the Galaxy Grand 2 and the Galaxy Mega 5.8 will also receive the Android KitKat soon.
