Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update For Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Might Have Entered Testing Phase

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

It’s been a long time since the Android 4.4.2 KitKat was released, but Samsung didn’t manage to update all their flagships yet, though now we have rumors about the Galaxy Note 2. It seems like the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has entered testing phase and it could start rolling out OTA in April.

We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Samsung’s smartphones, including the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Grand 2, but nothing is certain right now, unfortunately.

Updates have been one of the biggest concern for users of Samsung smartphones, because the company has a really bad track record with them, though things seemed to improve lately, after they promised timely updates for their latest devices.

Unfortunately it seems that most companies are only focusing on updating their latest devices to Android 4.4.2 KitKat and that’s why Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users have to wait longer. Other rumors are even saying that it won’t receive the update at all, but we really hope that’s not true, because it’s still a relatively new smartphone.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat brings a lot of improvements to the Galaxy Note 2 and it’s really a good enhancement to Samsung’s phablet.

KitKat features a new full-screen mode, which allows apps to hide the notifications menu, which can then be triggered by pulling down from the top of the device. It also comes with the new version of Hangouts, which can replace the stock Messaging app and send SMS and MMS, so you don’t have to use two apps anymore.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat also brings Location Settings, which allow you to enable and disable specific location settings easier and it also shows how much battery each one is using. A setting for default apps is also included, so you can see which app is set as default for each action and you can also change it.

We really hope that Samsung will manage to update the Galaxy Note 2 to Android 4.4.2 KitKat in April, because we’re near there and users shouldn’t have to wait much longer.

    It’s sort of a shame that a lot of older devices are being left behind. Even more so when you how much those devices cost when they were new. But good to see the Note 2 is getting some love still.

    Samsung has s bad track record with updates. You gotta be kidding me. Samsung is the ONLY OEM updating two year old devices. Is the HTC One X getting an update? No. What about the LG Optimus G? Probably not.
