KitKat for Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 beginning global rollout

4 months ago 5

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is a solid tablet featuring decent specifications and the all-important S Pen. While it isn’t amazing by any means, especially by today’s standards, it’s about to get a lot better. The global rollout of KitKat is just beginning in South Korea and Poland at the top of the list.

The KitKat update for this device brings exactly what you’d expect from Samsung’s TouchWiz. The status bar icons will be white; the performance and battery life will increase; and there will be wireless printing support, among other small things. While this is a major update, there are no major new features. But with any aging device, the speed boost will be appreciated.

If you live in Poland or South Korea, check for updates in the settings and get downloading! If you live elsewhere, periodically check for updates to see if it has begun to roll out in your country. Have patience, because the rollout may take a while. I’ll start charging mine in preparation. Do you still use a Note 8.0 tablet?
