Galaxy Note 8.0 getting KitKat update in South Korea and Poland

Firmware

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is taking a giant leap forward today in terms of the software – Samsung has started pushing out the KitKat update to the 8-inch Note in its home country. The update should be available over the air and via Kies at the moment, and will bump up the firmware version of the device to M500WKXUBND9. The update should include all the features and changes that were a part of the KitKat update for other Samsung devices. Highlights include faster performance, white status bar icons, improved battery life, full-screen album art on the lock screen, and wireless printing support.

Since the update is rolling out in South Korea, it shouldn’t be long before it arrives in other countries as well. We’ll be sure to let you known when that happens, though impatient folks can always head to our firmware section and download the firmware files to update manually (given the differences in the Korean variants of Samsung devices, we wouldn’t recommend flashing this one on non-Korean Galaxy Note 8.0’s.)

Update: The update is also rolling out to the international variant of the Note 8.0 in Poland, which means it shouldn’t be too long before it begins showing up in more regions.

Firmware Details:

  • • Model: SHW-M500W
  • • Model name: GALAXY Note 8.0 3G
