Sprint Galaxy Note 2

Sure, the Galaxy Note 3 has received an update to the latest version of Android in March, but what about its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 2? After outlining that the device would be receiving the KitKat update later this month, Samsung is making good on its promise by rolling out the update to Sprint's Galaxy Note 2.

This is the first major update for Sprint's Galaxy Note 2 this year, and brings all of KitKat's goodies to the last-gen phablet, like improved battery life, white status bar icons, full-screen album art, wireless printing support and more.

Samsung is on a roll as far as Android updates are concerned, and has rolled out KitKat to the international version of the Galaxy S4 Active earlier this week, and to the Galaxy Mega 6.3 today.

As is usually the case with these updates, it might be a while before all users receive it. If you don't see the OTA update, head over to the device's settings to manually check if there is one available, or connect your device to Samsung Kies to check for an update.

Now that Sprint has rolled out the KitKat update, other carriers should follow suit shortly.
