By Vivek

    Earlier this month, SamMobile had leaked the unofficial version of the Android KitKat 4.4.2 update for Samsung's 2013 flagship device, Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 variant. Now the update has started rolling out in Russia. Moreover, the update is likely to reach other markets in the coming weeks. However, the update is pushed only for the Exynos version of Note 3.

    The new Android 4.4.2 brings minor UI changes to the device, the most noticeable change being the use of KitKat style white status bar icons instead of the multi-colour icons Samsung has been using in all of its devices until now.

    Moreover, the change-log remains pretty much the same as Snapdragon variant of the Note 3 smartphone. And apart from the looks and design, the phone has also improved its performance with the latest update and there is an increase in benchmark scores, as well. Samsung has improved the lock-screen by adding a camera shortcut directly on to the lock-screen for quick access and while playing music the album art now shows up in full screen.

    Samsung's keyboard layout has also been improved for use in landscape mode, which makes gesture typing easy and it works much faster now.

    Further, other features can also be found in the device like wireless printing, new emojis support, choice between stock messaging app and Hangouts for SMS/MMS, option for changing default launchers under settings, and more.

    As we all know the software update is always rolled out in phases, so it may not yet be available in your country at the moment but don't worry it will arrive very soon.

    To update your Galaxy Note 3 to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, connect your device to your computer and use Samsung Kies. You can also wait for the Samsung's OTA (over-the-air) service. However, if you don;t receive it, you might as well try going to the Settings > More > About Device > Software update > Update.
