KitKat Rolling Out for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

As reported by @lalithbhaskar, and confirmed by Sammobile, the latest update brings Android 4.4.2 to Samsung's current flagship device. If you reside in one of the mentioned regions, you can force a manual check by going to Settings -> About phone -> Software updates and hitting Update.

KitKat will bring the Note 3 in line with Google's most recent software, including UI changes (notice the white status bar icons) as well as some underlying code. But be wary, as some of your accessories may lose functionality.
