Samsung saw fit to sneak Android 4.4.2 out on the international Snapdragon-based Note 3 last week (starting with Poland, for some reason), but now things are picking up steam. The first 4.4.2 updates are arriving for the Exynos Note 3 (SM-N900). First up on the update list this time is Russia.

This update includes all the behind-the-scenes Android 4.4.2 enhancements, but it has those stylish white status bar icons too. Also in this update is wireless printing, emoji support, Hangouts SMS integration, and more. You can pick up the firmware below from SamMobile, but you'll have to register (it probably won't work on any other Note 3 variant). The update should slowly make its way out to the rest of the world in the coming weeks.

Samsung also rolled out the kernel source for KitKat on the Note 3 (SM-N900) at the same time, which you can get from Samsung's developer site. It's probably only of interest if you're a developer, but at least there won't be as much confusion about what Samsung's doing.
