The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.4.2 update was spotted hitting devices in France late April, then, earlier this month, the Note 2 owners in India started reporting that the new firmware is hitting their devices. Now we hear that the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Note 2 variants will get updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat later this month.
According to a document we received in our inbox from an anonymous source (pictured below), the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE Android 4.4.2 update will be released later this month. We could not verify the veracity of the document therefore we are advising you to take it with a pinch of salt.
The table reveals the tests for the GT-N7105 Android 4.4.2 update have been completed and that it’s currently “waiting for approval of Firmware Center.” The new firmware is labeled N7105XXUFND8 and, as I was mentioning above, it should be pushed to users this month.
There are no details regarding the new features and improvements brought by the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE Android 4.4.2 XXUFND8 update, but we strongly believe it will be identical to the one that already rolled out for the Note 2 N7100. Expect changes transparent status bar, white status bar icons, cloud printing, full screen album and movie art in the lockscreen, color emoji support, cloud printing, new Location menu, immersive mode, or lockscreen camera shortcut, along with TouchWiz UI tweaks, updated Samsung apps, improved Samsung Keyboard, and enhanced security.
Once your Galaxy Note 2 LTE becomes eligible to receive the new update, you should receive a system update notification. It’s also worth trying to check for the update manually under Settings > More > About phone > Software updates > Check for software updates. Alternatively, you can grab the USB cable, connect your Note 2 LTE to the PC, then check for the update via Samsung KIES.
