Samsung updating Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Wi-Fi (SM-T310) to Android 4.4.2 KitKat


KitKat_Android_google-feature

If you thought Samsung doesn’t care about its mid-range devices when it comes to updates, you might want to think again. Just a few days after updating the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 to KitKat (albeit only in the US), Samsung is beginning to roll out the KitKat update to the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, a device that launched in June last year and is making a jump from Android 4.2.2 to 4.4.2. The update is currently rolling out in France to the Wi-Fi-only model with build number T310XXUBNE9, and should be making its way to other regions in the coming days, bringing the standard KitKat goodness (better performance, wireless printing support, white status bar icons, and more.)

As always, the update can either be downloaded over the air, through Kies, or from our firmware section if you like to live life on the edge and update manually. The update will take a few days to reach everyone, which is pretty much standard for any software update (though you can try to force it to show up early from the Settings » About tablet » Software updates menu.)

Firmware Details:

  • • Model: SM-T310
  • • Model name: GALAXY Tab3 8.0 Wi-Fi
  • • Country: France
  • • Version: Android 4.4.2
  • • Changelist: 1729796
  • • Build date: Sat, 31 May 2014 08:07:03 +0000
  • • Product Code: XEF
  • • PDA: T310XXUBNE9
  • • CSC: T310OXABNE9
  • • MODEM: T310XXUBNE9

Thanks, igy!

    Just great! Now how about the S4 mini?
    Let me refresh Samsung’s memory: the S4 Mini has just 1 year of existence on the planet and hasn’t received any (kitkat) update worth that name, apart from some cumbersome belgian-proximus wouldbe kitkat firmware vehicle (I’m in Belgium)…
    Oh, I forgot… it didn’t sell enough in the double figure million ballpark, right? Let’s rather update some 2 year old smartphone that was a hit in the old days….

    What about the regular galaxy tab 3 (SM-T210) When it is going to receive the kitkat update ? Samsung does not care about their customers anymore and i think they are not going to release the update for the 7.0 wifi version because they don`t want the previous model to disrupt the sales from the tab 4 7.0, Shame on you samsung!!!

      Cell carrier version are always weeks to months behind because they have to be modded and approved by each company. Thank God for Samsung though. Tired of running that crappy cynagenmod 4.4

    Installed this – no emoji keyboard in the standard keyboard. Has half and half old icons with the flatter ‘S5′ icons. Multi user support is now enabled in Settings. Multi window interface has changed, swipe in from the right brings a two column set of icons instead of the old movable always visible tab

    Still exploring what’s new and what’s missing compared to other Kitkat releases

    How about just take a break updating these budget price devices and make sure we who have bought your premium prize devices get updates asap. Still android 4.1.2 from january 2013 in my Note 10.1 while those cheap devices are updated right after another. What the hell is wrong with Samsung? The worst company ever in the world (imo) and yes, keep your so called premium devices by yourself, you have lost me atleast. I will never buy another “premium” from you. I have no trust to this toy company.

    Tab3 8″ to KitKat arrived in the UK (and Portugal)

    Didn’t get a notification, but this morning I checked Settings>About device>Check for update.
    KitKat 4.4.2 was ready for download (693Mb)
    Downloaded and installed.
    Multitask bar has lost it’s “handle” (where it is pulled from the of the device).
    I understood that the “camera will be available on the lock-screen. It’s NOT
    I understood that “Google Now” would always be “listening” for “Okay Google” to activate.. It’s NOT. One STILL has to press the mic icon.
    “White icons on the notification panel”. Don’t know what they are, but the icons (at the top) are still the same as ever.

    Galaxy Tab3 8″
    UK
    (update has also been released in Portugal, this morning 25th June)

    US OTA Manually checked, downloaded and updated successfully. Build number T310UEUCNF4.
    New Samsung keyboard, spellchecker improved, double cap locks keys, either side of keyboard?, clipboard still works intermittently, camera icon changed, no noticeable setting differences, tested, no noticeable picture improvements, GPS replaced by Location, GPS can be found under location settings.
    S4 and Tab 3 8, 4.4.2. S4 multiwindow pull from tab and Tab 3 swipe from right, Samsung needs to coordinate ecosystems!
    Native printing functions successfully. All other 4.4.2 features working.
