About a month after the international Note 3 first received KitKat, Android 4.4 has finally started rolling out to the US Cellular and Sprint versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

While some international Note 3 users already started to see the update to Android 4.4 KitKat late last month, the update has yet to reach stateside — until today. The Note 3 KitKat upgrade has now begun rolling out to both Sprint and US Cellular’s network.

So what’s new here? While neither Sprint or U.S. Cellular’s change-logs are all that detailed, the most obvious difference here is the addition of KitKat and all the new features that come with it. The Sprint change-log also mentions audio call improvements and several bug fixes, and we imagine similar changes exist in the US Cellular update.

Keep in mind that these type of rollouts often take several days or more, so don’t be too surprised if you’ve yet to receive a notification telling you that an update is ready. When in doubt, you can always manually check for an update by going to Settings> About Device> Software Update.

The US Cellular Note 3 update page also suggests connecting Samsung Kies for those that don’t want to wait for the OTA update. So how about it, has Android 4.4.2 KitKat arrived to your Sprint or US Cellular Note 3 yet? If so, did you notice any other major Samsung or carrier-specific changes?
