Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 update could be a while yet


The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is being released today in a number of countries around the world, but its predecessor is still being used by millions of users, but there is a chance that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update could be a while yet before it gets released.

Owners of the handset along with the Galaxy S3 have seen their device sitting on the 4.1.2 version of Android Jelly Bean for a number of months now, but after missing out on the 4.2.2 firmware some hope was recently given with the news that the Galaxy S3 and S4 would see 4.3 Android next month.

This would make you think that the Galaxy Note 2 would also be seeing the new firmware at around the same time, but according to Samsung insider SamMobile the company has only just begun testing the new operating system on the device.

Now if things go well there is nothing to say that the Note 2 won’t also see the later firmware during October, but if the company were to run into any problems the arrival may be a while yet.

This will come as Google is expected to release a new version next month in the form of Android 4.4 KitKat, which will mean yet another version of the OS that numerous flagship handsets will be waiting for.

We have already seen the later software running on both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer before the handsets gets treated to the Android 4.3 update.

Do you still think that the Galaxy Note 2 will also be updated next month?

    It would be nice to see all the features of Note II in 4.3. Although, I do like the Paranoid Android 4.3 for Note II, I miss some of the pop ups of TouchWiz. Yes…I said it…

    It is very disappointing. First time in my contract I decided to choose Samsung smartphone, and this is definitely the last time. When I had my HTC I had always the newest version of Android in about 2- 3 months after its been released. Now the only upgrade which I had so far was android 4.1.2. Shame. Galaxy note 2 to was one of the most expensive handset.
    They try to force users of note 2 and s3 to change theirs phones to newer version, but these phones are powerful enough to have nearly the same features as note 3 or s4.
    I will never chose Samsung again.

      Hmmm….i detect BS in your whole claptrap statement, you ain’t ever owned a Samsung, you are and always have been an HTC fanboy. Fairplay to you, you’re supporting an OEM that is dying and has itself failed on many updates of the latest version without it being a smooth release or a version behind, the HTC One s are an a example of this. Where is the global rollout for 4.3 on the One X then, you sir like the author, are full of s**t.
