We’ve told you already that Samsung may be preparing an Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 2 and now it’s official, as it’s been spotted by GFXBench. The update is for the Korean version of the Galaxy Note 2 for now, but we expect Samsung to release it internationally very soon.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users have been waiting for the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for a long time and it’s the time Samsung finally releases the update.
We are pretty sure right now that most Galaxy Note 2 users will receive the KitKat update, though it might take longer for some carriers to deliver it over the air (OTA).
Android 4.4.2 KitKat comes with a lot of improvements for the Galaxy Note 2 and you will notice some significant differences after the update. The update includes a full screen mode, location settings, default app settings, wireless printing and more.
Location Settings allow you to see and change all the location detection features and it also shows you how much battery does each one of them use. It can help you improve your battery life significantly.
A new setting allows you to see which apps are set as default for some actions and you can change them. It’s much easier than it was before and it can prove to be very useful.
Once Samsung releases the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update we will let you know, so you can manually check for the update. We will also get the update ourselves and offer it on our website, so you can install in manually via Odin, so you don’t have to worry about your carrier taking longer to deliver it.
We expect the update to start rolling out this month, though it could take longer for US carriers to get it ready. Most likely South Korea and European users will receive it first.
