Samsung is now seeding Android 4.4 KitKat firmware updates for two of its most popular slates – the original Galaxy Note 10.1 and the LTE flavor of its successor – the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.
Samsung began updating the Wi-Fi-only (Exynos-based) Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition six weeks ago. Now that its LTE-enabled Snapdragon 800-powered sibling is jumping on the KitKat bandwagon as well, we guess the 3G-enabled models should follow suit soon. The Nordic countries are the first to get the update, but you bet the rollout will expand to other regions soon.
Meanwhile the original Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 is also being treated with KitKat. Its official test ROM leaked a month ago, but now it is seeding globally to all compatible slates. The first market to get it is Germany, but more will be joining it in the next couple of days.
So, no matter which Galaxy Note 10.1 flavor you are using, the KitKat notification should pop up on your device shortly. In addition to the newest Android version and its enhancements, you will also get a newer TouchWiz version with updated Samsung apps.
