    Default Where is the 4.4 KitKat Upgrade for the Galaxy Note 3

    Its been over an hour and it hasn't been release yet. What's up with that?


    (Now lets see if I come up in all the google searches of people looking for information about the upgrade.)

    It will take several months, may not happen this year.

    I hear in order to get Kit Kat, you have to go to Google's house wearing some sort of mask......

    This is one of the big questions I have, too. Given how new the Note 3 is, that it's a flagship-level device, and that Kit Kat was *just* released, I'd be very surprised if we don't see an update. But I'm not betting on it coming any time soon. With my old original Epic, it took around 9-10 months to get updates and it was not unusual to be two versions behind the current Android OS. Based on that past experience with Samsung and Sprint, I'd be shocked if we see the 4.4 update in 2013 because that's only 2 months away. I'm hoping it'll hit by spring 2014, so within ~6 months, but think it could be as long as summer 2014 before we see it (that 9-10 month time frame I experienced before). IMO, FWIW, YMMV.

    If it screws up the phone like the upgrades from 2.3 to 4.0 to 4.1 did on the OG Note 1, they can keep their 4.4. Samsung has a way of giving you what you think you want and then what you never really wanted at all with their software updates. Basically their QA sucks.

    less than 24 hours out and the thread begins. Between Samsung and the carriers, it will be a while.

    It will be a while, most of us on here will be carrying different phones by the time it rolls out, people are already talking of getting the nexus now. Now if Samsung were to benefit from a rollout such as it working with a smart watch they sell, it would be coming very soon.

    I for one don't think it will take that long, specially now that HTC has said 4.4 will get to the ONE quite soon. Besides , comparing the upgrade from 2.3 to 4.4 now doesn't make much Sense. with Google Play Services m the game , the changes are not that big a challenge .

    I'm in no hurry, I don't see any must-have features in the new version, other than more things made by Google to get more people to live around Google.

    Official reply is that there's still no official reply yet. Hehehe Samsung's rep told the press they'll announce the KitKat upgrade timeframe "in due course".

    So, it's coming, just not right away. Most analysts expect the Note 3 and maaaaaybe the S4 to get it by the end of the year. You have to remember that the S4's upgrade rollout to 4.3 is just underway and it won't be available in all regions until the next few weeks, so in order to look smart, they'll probably even delay the 4.4 update a bit longer. And I wouldn't blame them, I mean, they go through the hoops to update to 4.3 and WHAMMY!, Google pulls 4.4 out of their sleeves... and by the time they get 4.4 rolling, WHACKADOODLE! Android 5.0

    yeah , no rush here either , I just don't see the tech hurdle to justify such long wait any more.

    As for the Google thing, I just can't see the problem ... Don't like Google Now? Disable it . Don't like the launcher? Use another... That's the beauty of Android. Besides, I very much doubt Samsung will allow those changes in, will most likely skip them.

    After reading this, I'm not sure I will be updating at all. I am not interested in turning my device into a complete Google zombie.

    I think it will be out within 3 months. A bunch of features of android 4.4 are energy saving for sensors. The benefits are to good for Samsung to ignore. not to mention 4.4 was announced the month of the Galaxy Note 3 launch. But since the note 3 couldn't get released with an unannounced android 4.4, they had to use android 4.3 with touchwiz 4.4 already in development. I'm hoping the touchwiz android 4.4 galaxy note 3 will have a modified audio driver for the loud speaker to lower the high pitches while boosting low pitches. The high pitches are like ear shattering on max volume while lower tones not loud enough. Seems like something the could fix in software like equalizer. The speaker is loud enough just the audio tones are not balanced enough for max volume
