Bell says KitKat update coming by Monday to its Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Bell says KitKat update coming by Monday to its Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Are you a Bell customer in Canada, toting a Samsung Galaxy Note 3? If so, we have some news that should put a smile on your face. A tweet from the Canadian carrier reveals that the Bell branded version of the Samsung phablet will be receiving the Android 4.4.2 update "by Monday." Bell didn't mention which Monday they were referring to, but we have a sneaking suspicion that the mobile operator means that the device will be updated by this coming Monday at the latest. Those Bell subscribers with the Samsung Galaxy S4 have just received the Android 4.4.2 update on Thursday.

Meanwhile, over at Bell's rival Rogers, the carrier has updated its website to show that its version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will receive its chocolatey update in late March. This is somewhat of a disappointment to Rogers' customers since an earlier road map from last month had this particular update listed as "coming soon."

If you are a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owner on Bell,keep your eyes peeled this weekend for the Android 4.4.2 update, coming OTA. Once you do receive it, let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

When will the international model of the galaxy note 3 with exynos chip be updated in Africa? Sick of the bloody wait already!! I'm slightly disappointed in Samsung with this device update schedule. I think international version users should have had the update since February at least. Not like they'll be changing much in regards to the user experience with the update anyway so no reason for this delay really.

At this point AT&T will be dead last which is rediculous seeing as how they have had it for about a month and a ½...

They won't be dead last that place is reserved for Verizon but still AT&T is way late.

This is awesome! I've been checking for weeks when it would come out on Bell and nobody had any info. I sure hope this is true I could use some of that kit Kat action. I'll keep you posted as soon as I test it. Woohooo!

They are hoping to distract everyone from the fact that every major carrier and their subsidiaries increased the price of their plans by $5 a month this week.
