What’s new in the N900XXUDND1 build? We can’t know for sure because Samsung didn’t release an official change log yet. Anyway, we can make guess. The update arrives with the usual KitKat goodies such as white status bar icons, transparent status bar, cloud printing, better power management, full screen album art in the lockscreen, immersive mode, camera shortcut in the lockscreen, color emoji support and more. It will also bring TouchWiz-specific changes like slightly revised interface, improved Samsung Keyboard, and updated Samsung native applications.
