Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat in Korea

Samsung launched its new Galaxy Note 3 Neo back in February, and, much to our surprise, it started shipping it with the rather old Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board. Of course, the Note 3 Neo is upgradeable to Android 4.4 KitKat - and its Korean version (model number SM-N750S) is getting the update as of now.

It looks like at least a few South Korean users were able to update their Note 3 Neo to Android 4.4.2. While this doesn’t tell us when the international variants of the handset will get KitKat, it’s probably a sign that it’s going to happen in the near future.

The Galaxy Note 3 Neo is smaller and cheaper that the original Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (which already received its KitKat update in lots of regions). The new handset is more like an upgraded Galaxy Note II, rather than a downgraded Note 3. Its features include a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, the (now famous) S Pen stylus, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 3,100 mAh battery.

I own a Note 10.1 2014 edition (P-601) and still haven't received a kitkat update, they are terribly slow. Come on we paid a lot for your devices!

C'mon Samsung!! I need the Kitkat update for my Note 10.1(2012). It's a shame that the other tablets like Tab 2 10.1, Tab 2 7.0, and Note 8.0 have a newer Android version than mine.

Did the note 10.1 (2012) even get 4.2.2? I gave away mine because the updates were pretty bad. Samsung doesn't have a lot of love for its flagship tablets
