Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat Release: Fast Pace Continues

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat release continues today as the update has pushed for a number of carriers in Canada including Rogers, a carrier that had originally planned for the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update to land in late March.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update has been pushing out at an extremely fast rate. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen it land for thousands of users across the globe including in the United States where Sprint, U.S. Cellular and T-Mobile have upgraded their devices to Google’s latest Android update.

The Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update shows no signs of slowing down. Today, the update has landed for a number of carriers in Canada including Rogers, the carrier that was one of the first to confirm the update’s arrival.

We’re hearing that Bell, Rogers and TELUS have begun pushing out the Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update though according to Mobile Syrup, it appears to be a more widespread than that. The site claims that Galaxy Note 3 users on Videotron, Eastlink and WIND Mobile are also receiving the update today.

The update is massive, checking in at well over 400MB in size and that means Galaxy Note 3 users will need to set aside some time to not only download the update but install it as well. Often times, it can take upwards of 20 minutes or so to complete the process.

Once the update is on board, the Galaxy Note 3 will not have access to Android 4.4 KitKat’s features which include emoji support and a quick way to switch between the default messaging application and Hangouts.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update remains missing for AT&T and Verizon in the United States. While AT&T’s update has appeared on Samsung’s website, the Verizon Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update remains completely missing in action. Neither carrier has provided any information about a release date and carriers typically don’t offer dates well ahead of time.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4 KitKat update is pushing out alongside the Galaxy S4 Android 4.4 KitKat update. That update, like the Galaxy Note 3′s, has landed for a number of devices around the world including devices in the United States. The Verizon Galaxy S4 remains the only major variant without Android 4.4 KitKat though there still are several smaller carriers that have yet to roll out the upgrade to their customers.

The company also plans Android 4.4 KitKat upgrades for the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 though those upgrades still don’t have concrete release dates in the United States, Canada, or elsewhere.

    “Once the update is on board, the Galaxy Note 3 will not have access to Android 4.4 KitKat‚Äôs features…” Did you mean to say that it will now have access?

    You’re missing the biggest update with 4.4.2. Once you update to kitkat you will not longer be able to write to your sd card. I had lots of apps writing to my 64gb sd which is now worthless. If I could go back a month and reject the update, I would in a heartbeat.

    AT&T has a long history of making customers wait for any updates until after they make money with the newer models. Then they will start rolling out updates as if nothing happened.

    Who cares about kitkat anyway? What’s the big deal, it has cons and pros and isnt much faster or better……. What’s the big deal about constantly reporting it’s update statuses all the time? Smh

    I’ve naively upgraded my Note 3, and now have the battery draining issues, sd card crippling, and some odd user interface problems where I experience large lapses in responsiveness. I’d give anything to be able to undo the update as my phone worked flawlessly before, but I’m afraid I may be stuck with this now. Quite unhappy.

    AT&T and Samsung are struggling to fix the broken GPS on that version of the phone…that’s why you haven’t seen a release of Android 4.4 on the AT&T network. It’s going to be a while before AT&T users see this update…probably sometime this summer or in the fall, by then who cares….LOL!!! This just gives more AT&T customers reasons to switch carriers and stay away from Samsung phones.
