Samsung Galaxy Note 3 jet black S pen stylus aa 6

Last Monday we learned that Android 4.4 KitKat had begun rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, at least for those in Russia. Now it seems that the update for the Note 3 SM-N9005 and SM-N900 is starting to make its way to a few other countries as well.

On Friday SamMobile reported that the OTA update had arrived to at least Poland, the Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, Hungary, India and Korea. We’ve also heard a few more recent reports that claim the OTA has also arrived to Latvia and Ireland.

So what’s new with the latest KitKat update? Besides the obvious jump to Android 4.4, the update is said to have a few Samsung-specific features including Touchwiz UI changes, changes to the lock-screen such as a camera shortcut and album art when playing music, and an improved Samsung keyboard.

So how about it, have you received an update for the SM-N9005 or the SM-N900? If so, what country are you in, and how did everything go? Liking the update so far?
