Galaxy Note 2 now with pre-release Android 4.3 treatment
In the coming few weeks we should start seeing a whole host of leading Samsung smartphones being treated to a new version of the Android operating system, and now the Galaxy Note 2 takes a turn with the pre-release Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update treatment.
Earlier today we told you about the Samsung Galaxy S4 seeing a pre-release version of the Android 4.3 firmware for the European version of the handset, and now the GT-N1700 version of the Galaxy Note 2 has seen a leaked version of the upcoming software appear.
It has the build number of N7100XXUEMI6 and is dated the 25th of September, but it is an early build of the upcoming software as testing has only recently begun for the smartphone. The firmware has again been made available for users that want to risk flashing the ROM to their devices, but it will likely have some bugs with not all features fully operational yet.
The company has updated a few features of the UI for both the Note 2 and Galaxy S4, and Samsung has also included some of the new software features that are found on the Note 3 and S4 for the older hardware.
There is a chance that more features will be added before its public release but it does already include the likes of Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet. Along with the Samsung Galaxy S3 the older hardware should all receive the official Android 4.3 update by December and maybe even sooner, but that doesn’t include carrier versions of the handsets that can take even longer to arrive.
