Update, 7-25-14: It looks like this over-the-air update was delayed for some reason. Samsung says it's coming in now.
KitKat is making its way to the Galaxy Note II. We've seen it come to Sprint, and just yesterday it started rolling out to Verizon's version of the handset. Now US Cellular has updated the support page for its Note II to say that KitKat is on its way. The carrier is pushing out an over-the-air update that will bump the phone up to version R950VXUCNE2.
Following the update, the phone will sport Android 4.4.2. There isn't much to say about KitKat at this point that you don't already know. Since Samsung has layered TouchWiz on top of everything, most of the more obvious changes are tucked away. Still, there are those white notification icons. That's worth getting excited about alone, am I right?
