KitKat update for Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
Samsung is rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat for its devices one by one and the new winner is the Galaxy Mega 6.3 phablet. The phone launched last year on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The software update has a build number I9200XXUDNE4 and is currently available in Russia through Samsung Kies, but more countries should join that list shortly.
You can check for updates on the About screen in the Settings menu for over-the-air updates, though there are no reports that it’s available yet. The other option, obviously, is to hook up your Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 to a computer running Samsung Kies.
The update brings the typical KitKat goodies, including improved performance, better battery life, support for wireless printing, a camera shortcut on the lockscreen and more, basically the same stuff other updated phones like the Galaxy S4 Active recently received.
Expect to see the standard KitKat features we’ve seen on other Samsung devices that were updated to KitKat, including faster performance, white status bar icons, improved battery life, full-screen album art (which playing music) and a camera shortcut on the lock screen, wireless printing support, ability to set the default messaging and launcher apps, and more.
Internal documents that got leaked recently revealed that the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3 would get the KitKat update in June, but Samsung has rolled out the update earlier than expected. The KitKat update adds wireless printing, support for emojis, minor UI changes and under the hood improvements such as white status bar icons, lockscreen Camera shortcut, Samsung Wallet and KNOX, full screen music album art in the lockscreen, improved user interface and performance improvements.
