Samsung's second generation Galaxy Note, which is currently running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, will reportedly receive Android 4.4.2 KitKat update later this month.
Recently, Samsung has been rumoured to be testing Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Galaxy Note 2. GFXBench has posted a listing for the South Korean variant of Galaxy Note 2 with model number SHV-E250. The data at the benchmark site suggests that Android 4.4.2 for the Note 2 is noted in the OS section.
Although this is not an international model, now at least one of the models of Galaxy Note 2 is benchmarked with Android 4.4.2 software.
After obtaining information from certain unnamed sources, Android Geeks reported that the Android 4.4.2 update is almost ready. Samsung will be reportedly sending it to carriers for certification soon.
However, there is not much information as to how long the carriers will take before pushing the Over-The-Air update.
This again hints that Galaxy Note 2 users are expected to get Android 4.4.2 software update by the end of this month. Currently, there is no information on the particular date for the update roll-out.
However, this would be an exciting news for the Galaxy Note 2 users, as there have been rumours that Samsung was likely to stop KitKat software support for the smartphone.
As for now, Samsung's 2011 flagship models, which includes Galaxy S2 and the first generation Galaxy Note, will reportedly not get Android KitKat upgrade any more.
