The latest version of the software started rolling out to customers on the carrier earlier today. Users who haven't received a notification to update could check for it in the Settings menu by following the usual drill. It may take a few days to reach everyone.

It features top of the line specs with an impressive display and 13-megapixel camera. It also sports a new design with its leather-like plastic backing which differentiates it from past Note models.
