Samsung starts rolling out Android 4.4.2 update for Note 2

Samsung Galaxy Note 2As we had reported earlier, Samsung has started rolling out Android 4.4.2 update for Galaxy Note 2 smartphone. It is live in France right now and is expected to roll-out in other markets over the coming weeks.

The official change-log is not available but like other Samsung KitKat updates, Note II Android 4.4.2 update is also expected to include the usual changes like translucent status bar, immersive mode, cloud-print support, lock-screen tweaks, performance enhancements, Samsung Wallet, Knox security and more.

The update is currently available via Samsung Kies but an OTA roll-out should begin in the next few days. You can either wait for automatic update notification or check for the OTA update by going to Settings > About Phone > Software update.

To remind you, Samsung Galaxy Note II was originally introduced in 2012 with Android 4.1 on-board but it skipped Android 4.2 update and was directly updated to Android 4.3. So, Android 4.4.2 is the second major Android update for the smartphone.

Samsung is also expected to begin the Galaxy S III KitKat update by April-end or in early-May, which will also bring similar changes.

The Korean manufacturer might not have a great update record for mid-range or entry-level Android devices but the company has kept updating its flagship devices and the KitKat update for Note 2 and S3 is an example of that.

If you have updated your Galaxy Note II smartphone to KitKat, do let us know about the experience in comments.
