Last month, Google revealed that Kitkat had gained the most as its share of 2.3 percent rose to 5.3 percent in the month of March. It was largely attributed to Samsung and LG releasing phones running KitKat out of the box. These included the flagship Galaxy S5 from Samsung and LG’s L70 and L90 smartphones which were launched in March in India.
