Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Android 4.4.2 update leak screenshots

Just a couple of days after a test build of Android 4.4.2 for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 leaked out, it's time for Galaxy Note 3 owners to break off their own piece of Samsung's KitKat bar. The folks at SamMobile have posted an Android 4.4.2 test update for the international Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005) that features the build number KOT49H.N9005XXUENA6 and is said to be one of the final test builds for the device.

The Galaxy Note 3's Android 4.4.2 update features many of the same tweaks that are included with the Galaxy S 4's KitKat bump, such as white status bar icons and a lock screen camera shortcut. Also said to be packed into this bundle of KitKat goodness is full screen album art on the lock screen and "significantly" improved performance that even manages to speed up the process of unlocking the Note 3.

As with the Galaxy S 4 leak, this Android 4.4.2 update for the Galaxy Note 3 is available for download for any users that don't feel like waiting for Samsung's official push to begin. SamMobile suggests that that rollout could begin in one to two weeks, but as with most other software updates, owners of carrier-branded Note 3 units will likely be waiting a bit longer while their update goes through the operator approval process. The good news is that there are quite a few screenshots of this leaked Note 3 update for those users to ogle while they wait. Check 'em out at the link below.
