It seems to be raining KitKat on Samsung phones this week. We’ve seen US Cellular and Sprint roll out the KitKat update for the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, and now, Samsung is pushing the latest version of the OS to the Galaxy Mega 6.3, the largest phone in its extensive smartphone lineup. The update is currently out in Russia both over the air and on Samsung’s PC software Kies – there’s no telling when US carriers will get around to releasing the update, but it shouldn’t be long now that the international variant has started getting it.
The update will push the software version of the device to I9200XXUDNE4 and bring the usual KitKat goodies. These include improved performance, advanced location control, wireless printing support, redesigned status bar, full-screen album art on the lockscreen when you’re playing music, expanded emoji support, and the option to select the default SMS and launcher apps. You can try to manually pull the update from the Settings » About phone » Software updates menu, though at such an initial stage of the rollout, that might not do much to get the update to your device right away.
