The Samsung phablet does not get Lollipop yet, but a new KitKat update that comes with improvements and fixes, as well as a few preloaded apps, including Find My Mobile and Kids Mode stub in Widget Tray.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
