Samsung seems to be updating multiple devices to KitKat this week. The AT&T variant of the Galaxy S4 Active started receiving the coveted update yesterday, and now, the update is rolling out to the international Wi-Fi variant of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (SM-P600), the forbearer of Samsung’s recent lineup of professional high-end tablets. The update is currently rolling out in Columbia, and will likely show up in other regions before the weekend.
The list of features and changes is the same as that for other Samsung devices that have hopped on to the latest version of the OS. There’s performance improvements, reduced memory consumption, white status bar icons, wireless printing support, full-screen album art and a new camera shortcut on the lock screen, options to select the default home and SMS apps, enhanced sound controls for specific Samsung apps, and general stability improvements. It’s unclear if the update will bring over the new Magazine UX found on newer Samsung tablets like the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO, though it’s likely those details will soon be cropping up.
As usual, the update will be rolled out in a phased manner, so it could be a few weeks before it arrives on every Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition out there. However, you can do a manual check in the Settings » General » About phone » Software updates menu to force it to show up immediately, though that won’t exactly help in most cases.
