Samsung Galaxy Note 2 KitKat upgrades finally begin

samsung-galaxy-note-2-shankland

Samsung’s history of delayed upgrades for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 owners seems to finally be, well, history. They’ve started delivering Android 4.4 KitKat to the masses, with the first rollouts of the latest version of Android reported to have begun in France.

The upgrade — which will bring your build up to N7100XXUFND3 — is available through Kies, and it brings with it all of the KitKat bits you expect alongside all of Samsung’s own changes (which include the addition of KNOX, a camera shortcut to the lock-screen and more).

Of course, those on carrier-branded versions of the Note 2 will have to wait a while yet, because these things often take a while to get through testing, certification and carrier approval. If you have the unlocked version and you happen to live in France, though, then help yourself to a break today. Let us know how you’re liking it in the comments straight ahead.

    Thank goodness I’m rooted or I’d be waiting probably another 2-3 months till Verizon pushed the update.

    I have an AT&T Note II with Android 4.3. If getting 4.4 is going to break text reflow in Dolphin (Native Broser, Firefox and Chrome for me don’t reflow), then forget it – I won’t upgrade. Who the hell decided to break this functionality at Google? I hear Opera still works.

    All the changes are minor, but there is a noticeable performance jump (not talking benchmarks, but real world use).
