Samsung Makes the Exynos Note 3 Owners Happy, KitKat on the Roll for SM-N900

It looks like Samsung has decided not to keep it’s users waiting for long. It’s been days since we’ve been seeing the Android 4.4.2 KitKat leaked test firmwares popping up, and then the official releases soon followed the leaks. It’s just about time, Samsung has started rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for it’s latest flagship phablet Galaxy Note 3’s Exynos variant SM-N900. Earlier, Samsung rolled out KitKat update for Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 for the Poland region through Samsung Kies and OTA, the update is yet to roll out for other regions. KitKat for Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 is currently seeding to the Russian Galaxy Note 3 users.

What this update packs up is a lot of performance enhancements, stability and bug fixes for sure, but atop of all these the icing on the cake is KitKat style icons in the notification bar. Samsung has turned the icons from old green Gingerbread style to the latest crunchy white KitKat style. Along with these UI changes, Samsung has improved the lockscreen by adding a camera shortcut directly on it. Users can make a choice between what launcher to use in settings now, a choice is also available for using Hangouts or Messaging app to use for SMS/MMS purposes.Samsung-Galaxy-Note-3-front-back.jpg-640x488

Here are the Firmware details:

      • Model: SM-N900
      • Region: SER (Russia)
      • OS:  4.4.2 KitKat
      • Version: N900XXUDNA6

As always, this update is on a slow roll out and will hit different regions with time. There is no telling when this update will hit what region, so you just got to keep patience while Samsung cooks it up and presents to you. If you’re much eager to get it running on your device, you may update it manually using the guide on our site.
