Samsung Galaxy Note 3 starts to receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update

Samsung logoSouth Korean maker Samsung is now rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for its Galaxy Note 3 phablet. The software upgrade arrives more than two months after Google announced the latest version of its mobile operating system.

The code that Samsung is rolling out now is identical to the version that leaked earlier, and is available for the international (SM-9005) model of the Galaxy Note 3. Unsurprisingly, the first stage of the roll out commences in Poland.

The changes include under-the-hood tweaks, white status bar icons, a shortcut to the camera app on the lockscreen (the image at the top of the post shows the older, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build) and tweaks to the built-in keyboard.

The update can be installed using the Samsung companion app KIES, and should also reach devices over-the-air in the coming days or weeks. As usual, it might take longer for users of carrier-branded Galaxy Note 3s to officially experience the latest version of Android. There is no word yet concerning the availability of the update for the Exynos-equipped model (SM-9000).
