Last week we noted that Samsung had published the source code for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3′s Android 4.4 update, a move that suggested that the official update may not be far off. It turns out that that was indeed the case, as several users on the T-Mobile and xda-developers forums are reporting that KitKat update is now making its way to the Magenta-flavored Note 3.
The update is a hefty one, weighing in at 495.74MB. Once installed, the Galaxy Note 3 will be on Android 4.4.2 and software version KOT49H.N900TUVUCNB4. Neither Samsung nor T-Mobile have posted an official changelog for the update yet, but Sammy has previously said that its KitKat update includes upgraded Google apps and a “more intuitive user interface,” complete with white status bar icons.
The T-Mobile Note 3′s Android 4.4.2 update comes to us a couple of weeks after the Sprint and U.S. Cellular Note 3 models began receiving their own KitKat bumps. It’s nice to be able to cross another device off of the list of Galaxy phones awaiting their update to 4.4, and hopefully the updates for other U.S. Note 3 variants will be along shortly. Until then, you T-Mo Note 3 folk can check for your helping of KitKat by going into Settings > General > About device > Software update.
