The 4.4.2 update has already reached owners of the international version of the Note 3 in Poland, says Sammobile. When could it land in other countries?

Owners of the international version of Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 should expect Android 4.4.2 KitKat to flavor their phablets before too long.

The latest version of Android for the Note 3 has already begun showing up in Poland, according to blog site Sammobile, where users must download and install it via Samsung's Kies software. An over-the-air variant is expected to appear as well.

No specific dates were revealed to indicate when additional regions might see the update. But other Note 3 owners around the globe will likely receive it sometime over the next couple of weeks.

However, US users are out of the running for this particular update. The firmware version for the new update is N9005XXUENA6, which points to the international edition of the Note 3.
