The unlocked version of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE SM-N9005 Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware update with build number N9005XXUENB7 that has been seen only rolled out in Germany last week has now also seen rolling out and available in United Kingdom, this include Ireland of-course since both has the same firmware build version on Samsung devices. The released of the 4.4.2 KitKat now seen almost covered on carrier branded or those devices that are locked -out with network operators. While during the past few months only few released seen on unbranded Galaxy Note 3 devices. There are still few remaining countries, including Italy, parts of Northern Europe like Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland has not been enjoying the 4.4.2 update yet. So, I just assume and expects that this firmware build N9005XXUENB7 will arrive soon on those region too.
