We kept telling you about the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for various devices, as we’re trying to find out when phone makers are going to release it to their smartphones. Now we have some information about the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which might be released later this month.
According to some sources, it seems like the update is almost ready and Samsung is going to send it to carriers for certification very soon. This means that Galaxy Note 2 users might receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update by the end of this month, but it’s not yet certain how long will carriers take before pushing it over the air.
As you probably know already, every time an update is released, we get our hands on it and help you install it manually, so you don’t have to wait for your carrier to release it. We’re going to do the same with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update and you will be able to install it manually on your Note 2 the day it gets released, no matter where that happens.
We’re glad to see that Samsung hasn’t forgotten Galaxy Note 2 users, because some previous rumors were suggesting that Samsung won’t support the phablet anymore.
We’ve been also trying to find out what’s Samsung final decision for the Galaxy S2 and the original Galaxy Note, but we have nothing clear yet. Unfortunately for those users, it seems like they won’t receive an official update to Android 4.4 KitKat at all.
While you’re waiting for the official update to be released, you can try a custom ROM for your Galaxy Note 2, as we’ve tested some and we’ve written guides for you to install them safely. On our website you can find custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100 and N7105.
