Sprint LG G Flex and Verizon Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) Now Receiving KitKat

Now that we’re a half year past the  official release of Android 4.4, many devices have already received or are just now receiving Google’s latest and greatest. What’s more, various carrier variants of devices that have already received the update are now receiving KitKat as well. You may recall that eleven days ago, the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) and the AT&T LG G Flex received their Android 4.4 updates. Now just under two weeks later, two more variants of the above devices are receiving their updates.

Sprint LG G Flex

First up, we have the Sprint variant of the LG G Flex. Today’s update comes in at software version LS995ZV6, as opposed to the V3 release firmware. According to Sprint, the update brings an “OS upgrade to Android 4.4 (Kit Kat).” Aside from this, it’s safe to assume that the same features that made their way into the AT&T update will also be found in the Sprint update. These include Knock Code, which can be viewed as an upgrade or extension to the previous KnockOn double tap to wake feature. With Knock Code, users can tap a predefined pattern to unlock their devices. In addition to Knock Code, the update will likely also bring the same refined UI, improved speed and efficiency, and cloud printing that we’ve seen in the KitKat updates for other devices.

Verizon Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014)

Next, we have the Verizon variant of Samsung’s latest flagship tablet. Today’s update brings  up the Verizon Note 10.1 (2014) to software version P605VVRUCNC2. As a result of the KitKat upgrade, the Note 10.1 (2014) now gains immersive mode for full screen viewing, faster multi-tasking, print services, and multi-user mode. And according to Verizon, it also brings improved S Note performance, fixes for graphical glitches in Chrome, a fixed Google account sign in wizard, and more.

The updates for both devices have not yet been captured or mirrored. However, be sure to mash that update button, as the updates are now rolling out. Also, make sure to visit the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) and LG G Flex forums to get in on the discussion and sideload the update once it has been captured and mirrored.
