Some good news today for owners of Telstra branded Galaxy Note 2 handsets, with Australia’s biggest telco approving the rollout of a platform update to Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat).
The update, which is quite a big update in terms of scale, sees the Galaxy Note 2 go from Jelly Bean (Android 4.3.2) to Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) and is most likely the last platform update the device will see, though hope remains that a Lollipop update may appear one day.
Looking over at SamMobile, the listing is coming up as follows:
Model name GALAXY Note II LTE
Country Australia (Telstra)
Version Android 4.4.2
Build date Tue, 03 Mar 2015 08:46:18 +0000
Product code TEL
Its good to see the Galaxy Note 2 getting at least another platform update, though it is well overdue with Telstra originally testing out Android 4.4.2 back in October with issues being found during testing, forcing a re-submission of software.
You can check as to whether or not the update is ready for you by going to Settings > About Device > Software Updates and then click on ‘Check Now’ to see if you have the update ready for you and given the size it might be best to do this over WiFi instead over 3G/4G.
Have you received the update? What do you think of the update? Has your Galaxy Note 2 become faster or better on the latest update? We would like to hear your thoughts below
