Android 4.4.2 KitKat update now rolling out for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and Note 10.1 2014 Edition LTE
Samsung has always been known for its regular update schedules for its devices and that has helped it garner a loyal fan base. It usually provides updates for its flagships for about 18 months and that is quite good. Samsung has started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for two of its most popular tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1 and LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. The Wi-Fi only sibling of the Note 10.1 2014 got itself the update a couple of months ago.
The KitKat update roll-out for Note 10.1 2014 Edition LTE version has begun in the Nordic region which includes Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Whereas, the original Note 10.1 is getting the update in Germany. This should be followed by a phased global roll out. It will be offered as an OTA update and also through the Samsung Kies suite. So you can check in your settings as well to see if your region has started getting the update.
Talking about the update, it brings the latest flavour of Android, 4.4.2 KitKat and the good things that come with it. It will get performance and bug fixes and a snappier performance too. You will get support for wireless printing; the status bar icons will get coloured white, camera shortcut on the lock screen and ability to view a full screen album art while playing music will be available too.
You will also get better sound controls and the option to select the default home and SMS applications. Do let us know if you have got yourself an update.
