T-Mobile rolled out an update for its Galaxy Note 3 last month which brought several software features that were first unveiled with the Galaxy S5. Samsung had said that these features would soon make their way to other devices, and indeed they have. The company has now rolled out a similar update for the Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005). This particular variant is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and is often referred to as the “international variant.”

Carrying build number N9005XXUFNF4 the update weighs in around 185MB. It brings a couple of software features from the Galaxy S5 as well as version 2.0 of the KNOX security suite.

The first feature to land on the Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005) is Download Booster. Basically what this feature does is radically increase download speeds on mobile by coupling Wi-Fi and 4G LTE. The incredible speeds achieved as a result of this coupling making download large files a breeze. Though it depends on mobile carriers if they choose to support this feature.

The other feature is Kids Mode. This feature lets offers a simplified user interface for children where they can access approved applications without having access to data on the device. Its great for parents with little children that want to play with their phones. This update only brings the Kids Mode installer. The necessary files will have to be downloaded via the installer once this update has been installed.

As always it may take a couple of days for this software update to come available across all markets. Users who have this particular variant should wait a bit to receive a notification for this over-the-air update.
