Exynos-based Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gets Android 4.4 KitKat

20 January, 2014

The Android 4.4 KitKat firmware for the Snapdragon 800-powered Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is already seeding in Poland and even more countries will be getting it very soon.

Today, just a week after the S800 ROM became official, the Exynos 5 Octa powered Galaxy Note 3 is also tasting the sweet KitKat. The first country to get the latest Android release is Russia, but naturally, other regions will be joining the list in the next few days.

The KitKat firmware boosts the performance of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, improves the RAM management and increase the system stability. It will also bring you monochrome status bar icons, full-screen album art on the lockscreen, plus some bug fixes. There is still no info on the battery performance, but fingers crossed it will get better as well.

Upgraded my Snapdragon800 N9005 Note 3(Kuwait) to Kitkat 4.4.2.version. Looks good and more faster. But S-view is not working anymore. Hope Samsung will clear this bug.
