Samsung released the Android 4.4.2 KitKat source code for the T-Mobile model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 since last week so an OTA update is highly expected. Even though for now there isn’t any official statement coming from T-Mobile, the Galaxy Note 3 users can anytime update their Android devices to stock KitKat firmware manually by flashing the software through Samsung KIES, or Odin.
As you might know, T-Mobile just made available the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update available for the LG G2, the firmware being leaked also since last week. But as you know, when coming to OTA releases (when the OTA is actually provided), the firmware is being rolled out in phases or gradually which means that some users can receive the OTA sooner than others.
Furthermore, since is already March, more Android devices are being expected to receive the KitKat flavor, especially if we consider that most of the retails, including T-Mobile, announced that OTAs will be provided starting from last month. Also, since Android 4.4.2 can smoothly run on devices with mid range performances, not only on high end smartphones or tablets, we are expecting OS improvements for numerous handsets during the following days or weeks.
Since the Android 4.4.2 official update for T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 was just made available, probably the phablet’s users had already flashed a KitKat based custom ROM on their Android devices. There are a few interesting firmwares available for the Note 3, so the official update might not be so highly expected. In case you are applying the official firmware on your device do tell us how the OS works and if there are bugs or any other related problems or issues.
