Hot on the heels of the leaked KitKat build for the Galaxy S4 comes the Galaxy Note 3 build. The firmware number N9005XXUENA6, leaked by SamMobile, is said to be one of the final builds for the Note 3, which means all the features present in this build are final and only a few bug fixes will be made before it starts rolling out officially.
Update: The ROM has now started officially seeding to the Galaxy Note 3 units in Poland and a few other European countries. More should be joining the list in the next few days.
Among the many changes in this build, the ones that are most visible is the presence of white notification icons. This is an interesting change for Samsung who never really adopted the previous blue icons in Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean, choosing to go with it's own color scheme every time. Some of the other visible changes include fullscreen album art on the lockscreen and a new camera shortcut button. The performance is also said to be substantially improved in both actual usage and benchmarks.
This build is for the N9005 model only, which is the one that runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with LTE support. If you have this device and can't wait for the official update to be available (which could take months), head over to the link below.
