Wi-Fi Galaxy Note 8.0 now getting Android 4.2.2 in the U.S.

Galaxy Note 8

The Wi-Fi variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is now getting the much awaited Android 4.2.2 update. The update has already gone live in some parts of the world, but it has been confirmed that the Wi-Fi variants in the U.S. are currently seeing the update either through Samsung Kies or as an over the air update. The update is over 661 MB in size as the screenshot suggests, so users are advised to remain on an unlimited Wi-Fi network while downloading the update.

The update will change a few things on the tablet, mostly with regards to how things look along with a few new UI tweaks as well. The customary bug squashing comes bundled with the update as expected. If you’ve been waiting for an update notification to pop up, now is the time to check for an update or hook up your device through Samsung Kies and manually download and apply the update.

The Galaxy Note 8 launched in the first half of 2013 to a lukewarm response around the world. It packs an 8 inch 1280×800 resolution display, a quad core Exynos 4412 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP camera on the back with a 1.3MP front camera, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot and a 4,600 mAh battery. The tablet currently costs $359 through Amazon, making it relatively pricier than other competitive offerings like the 2013 Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire HD.
