US Wifi versions can update OTA or via Samsung Kies
We're confident enough to say that the Android 4.2.2 update for the US Wifi model Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is really rolling out to just about everybody. For a few days, we've been hearing reports from folks saying it was available, but it seems to have gotten a big push from whoever pushes these sort of things and chances are, it's there waiting for you.
It's very similar to the leaked version many were running, and has the same stability improvements as well as some small interface changes in TouchWiz that the LTE version saw last month. Specifically to Contacts, S Planner and Email. Of course, the under-the-hood improvements that come with a platform version bump will also apply.
To see if your spot in the queue is ready, you can check for an update from the settings or connect to your computer via Kies. Once you get it installed, be sure to hit the forums and chat it up.
Thanks Joe for the pictures, and everyone who sent this in!
