As you all know our Galaxy Y pretty much won't be getting a 4.4 KitKat update. Yes some posts on the web does say that one of the phones receiving this update is "Galaxy Y" . Now it doesn't tell specifically what type of Galaxy Y as there is our Galaxy Y - The GT-S5360 , then there is the GT-S6102, and then the Galaxy Y most likely to receive the update, The Galaxy Y GT-S6310 which has a 1Ghz processor and 768MB of RAM. Now this doesn't necessarily mean we can't have the LOOK of KitKat on our devices so presenting here, is the KitKat Launcher for Android 2.3 and above.


Developed by invinsible_asp and he claims it is 95% accurate to the actual Official KitKat Launcher. It actually is a modified S3 Launcher but not the one Sam-Ron modified. It is the exact launcher he extracted of a chinese device that he modified to look like KitKat.
