The list is going to be updated daily, with the shifts happening between the expected list and confirmed list, as and when any company announces about the future updates. For now, keep a note that not all the devices are confirmed, thus are categorized separately. But if you own one of the flagship smartphones launched in 2014, the update is almost confirmed, at least from what has been happening every year.
