Galaxy Note 8 LTE getting Android 4.2.2 update

by: Brad WardAugust 5, 2013


It seems Samsung is trying to roll out Android 4.2 to some of its major devices these days. The Galaxy S2 Plus and Galaxy Note 8.0 (Wi-Fi) received the update, and now its LTE counterpart is getting the update. As per the norm, you may not be able to snag the update just yet, as this is a gradual rollout. At the time being, the update is available in the U.K., but more countries will be soon to follow.

You can download the update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE (GT-N5120) via Samsung’s Kies desktop software. Just make sure your device’s battery is fully charged, as this is a very large update. While Android 4.2 isn’t a very major update, it’s still an improvement, bringing with it cool things like Photo Sphere and Google Now improvements.

    4.2.2 update Note 8 broken. Auto dim no longer works. Samsung email does not fill screen when rotated to landscape. Multi window did not work until I did a complete reset. Contacted Samsung support. They don’t have a clue…..
