US Cellular began pushing Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat to the Galaxy S III back in late-May. And as of today, another US Cellular branded Samsung device is getting the same treatment. Simply put, the Galaxy Note II Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat update has begun.
Along with the bump to 4.4.2, the Galaxy Note II will end up sitting with baseband version R950VXUCNE2 once the update has been installed. Similar to other US Cellular updates — those with a Galaxy Note II will be able to grab the update over-the-air, or connected to a computer using Kies.
The update is the same regardless of the option you choose, and taking the over-the-air approach is the simpler of the two. Of course, opting for over-the-air sometimes means a little bit of waiting. You can head to Settings -> About Device – Software Update to try and get the process started manually, but otherwise, you may want to simply keep an eye out for the update notification.
In terms of the update itself, one of the smaller, but more noticeable items will be the white status bar icons. In addition, US Cellular touts this update as bringing a more user-friendly interface, faster multi-tasking, wireless printing capabilities, and a new messaging experience. Of course, those who stay current with app updates may already be experiencing some of the new messaging experience because that comes from Hangouts.
