Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 getting Android 4.4.4 update in South Korea and China

The Galaxy Note 10.1 has been one of those devices that Samsung chose to ignore for a long time before finally updating it to KitKat, but it seems the company is making up for previous delays as it has now started rolling out the Android 4.4.4 update for the tablet. The update is currently available in South Korea and China – in Samsung’s home country, the update is going out to both the Wi-Fi and 3G models (SHW-M480W, SHW-M480K), and in China it’s available for the LTE model (SHW-E320S). Android 4.4.4 mostly includes bug fixes and security patches; it’s not too major, but it’s still good to see Samsung isn’t being partial and has been updating both mid-range and high-end devices to the latest version of the OS.

Expect the update to come knocking at the international models in the next few weeks, both over the air and via Kies. As always, the full firmware for the update can also be downloaded from our firmware section for updating manually.
