Earlier this week, Samsung pushed out an update for the Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, bringing it up to Android 4.4 KitKat. Unfortunately, the LTE model was forced to wait on Verizon's software cycle, but that doesn't appear to have taken any time at all.
Verizon today announced an OTA Android 4.4 KitKat update for the LTE Galaxy Note 10.1, replacing the previous Android 4.3. As usual, the update promises Immersive Mode for automatic full-screen viewing and faster multi-tasking, to go along with multiple user accounts and permissions.
The KitKat update also addresses certain security problems, including a fix for the SD card failing to erase following decryption password failure. Available immediately, the update can be downloaded via LTE or Wi-Fi, but with Samsung's update registering at 550MB in size, users would do well to connect to a wireless network before commencing.
