Verizon Galaxy Note 3 receives Android 4.4.4 update
Next to Verizon's customers that use Galaxy S4 handsets, the carrier's clients who own the Galaxy Note 3 phablet are waiting for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to become available for their devices. Unfortunately, that is not the case for now since all they get is Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The good part is that this update brings even a few new features next to the usual fixes and improvements.
According to the official update notes, the new firmware is labeled N900VVRUCNC4 and packs the following:
- Verizon Support & Protection update
- Isis Wallet changed to Softcard
- Caller Name ID update
- Knox 2.0 for enterprise support
- Find My Mobile preloaded
- Virtual Tour camera mode
- Side Sync call forwarding
- Kids Mode stub in Widget Tray for parental control
In addition to the above, the new Android update for Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablets improves 4G data connectivity and voice call performance, also fixing SMS and Bluetooth problems, as well as the data disconnect issue that appeared when using VPN.
The update is already rolling over-the-air, but users who did not get an OTA notification yet can also perform the operation manually.
