Samsung has lived up to the expectation of its loyal users once again. Though Galaxy S4 Mini: Black edition is available in only few regions but still this does not stop Samsung to roll out a major KitKat 4.4.2 update for Galaxy S4 Mini. Well, the interesting point here is that the Black version of Galaxy S4 Mini is not internationally available and is limited to few markets but still it has got the KitKat 4.4.2 update before its standard sibling which is available internationally.
