galaxynote2createThe Android 4.4 KitKat update has been confirmed for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which is a good sign for those that did not want to upgrade just yet.  Samsung and all of the major mobile carriers have to get things lined up for the actual release, but until then you can take a look at the changelog to see what you can expect when it arrives.  Just that Samsung is bringing the new software to an older device like the Galaxy Note 2 is a good sign for users.

The Google Android 4.4 KitKat software started rolling out from Samsung months ago and even though the update was incremental for the Galaxy S3 and S4 smartphones, the Galaxy Note 2 is another story.  The update is going to move the phablet from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software all the way to the Android 4.4 KitKat which is the latest and greatest from Google.  Because the release of the Android 4.4 rollout started overseas already, it will only be a matter of time before it arrives here.  According to one online source, the update should be live sometime this month.

Features that are expected to come along with the Android 4.4 KitKat software include the simple font updates and the some of the icons for Google services.  Each carrier is going to bring its own features with the new software, but users can certainly expect that they will not be getting the Galaxy S5 features since the S3 or the S4 were passed up there as well.  Issues that were reported with the GPS units within the smartphones on the AT&T network are expected to get fixed with the update.  Mobile carriers are also going to do the best they can to make the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean problems go away as well.

Another problem that is expected to get fixed is the one with the microSD card.  The same problem was also noticed within the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 devices.  A lot of times, after an update like this one, the battery drain becomes one of the hottest topics discussed in reviews and forums all over the web.  Knowing how long Samsung is going to support the Galaxy Note 2 is going to be another thing.  Samsung usually provides 2 years of support and that can be expected here as well.
