After Samsung released the Android 4.4.2 update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition last month, now it’s time for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 to receive the new software update. Users in Germany are reporting that they are getting notified to install the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android 4.4.2 KitKat update, which is a sing that the new software will be rolled out in other countries soon enough.
The new Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has build number N8000XXUDNE4 and, just like any other software update, it’s being pushed in stages meaning that the ETA may vary with your location. As you may know already, once your tablet becomes eligible to receive the firmware you should receive a system update notification. Tap on it then follow the on-screen instructions. It’s also worth checking for the update manually under Settings > More > About device > Software updates. Alternatively you can grab the USB cable, connect your Galaxy Note 10.1 to the PC and check for the new software through KIES.
For the time being there’s no official changelog for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android 4.4.2 update, but you shouldn’t be too surprised if you see that it’s fairly similar to the KitKat updates that rolled out for other Samsung device. Besides the usual KitKat goodies such as white status bar icons, transparent status bar, immersive mode, cloud printing, color emoji support, new Location menu, or full screen album art in the lock screen, you should also expect updated Samsung native apps, improved Samsung Keyboard, performance boosts, and better power management.
If the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is still not available for your Galaxy Note 10.1 unit, you can flash it manually to your device by following the instructions found in thins tutorial.
