Written By:

Here's some great news for all those of you owning the previously released Galaxy Note 10.1 (model number GT-N8000) and waiting to treat the device to some much needed updated OS love.

According to reports, as shown via a brand new test firmware leak, the previously released Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is soon set to receive the much anticipated and massively popular Android 4.4 KitKat update. For the record, the tablet hasn't been updated since the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.

Initially launched with Android 4.0.4 ICS out of the box and later updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet has already skipped two of the major Android updates previously pushed out by Google: Android 4.2 and Android 4.3.

Previous to this, owners of the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet had a firm belief that their devices may never be updated to the latest Android offering. And more so after Samsung released the Galaxy Note 2 phablet with the Android 4.3 update together with the Galaxy Note 10.1.

However, all these owners will now be able to finally taste the KitKat, thanks to XDA forum member izap for leaking an Android 4.4.2 test build for the Note tablet.

The firmware was originally leaked in 11 parts and it is massively expected that Samsung will officially start rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 in May/June.
