The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3, JellyBean update is now available through a new test firmware.
A test version of the software hit the Galaxy S4 yesterday and now is available for the company's other flagship device.
The codename for the Note 2 build is N7100XXUEMI6 and it works on the GT-N7100 model. It's a fairly early version that was originally leaked to Vietnamese Tinhe forums today and is now available on the XDA Developer's forum as well.
The update brings many of the UI elements found on the Note 3 and Galaxy S4 to the older device. It also is said to offer speed improvements and other performance enhancements. The update comes with Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet which also were included in the Galaxy S4 firmware yesterday.
As with any of these test firmwares, users should take caution before downloading and installing it. It may end up coming with some bugs and other issues. Users looking to download the software could click here for more information.
The Android 4.3, JellyBean update release dates for the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 were leaked by Samsung Canada and French mobile operator SFR earlier this week.
Samsung Canada's vice president of the enterprise business division Paul Brennan confirmed to MobileSyrup that the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 2 will update to the new software a bit after international users.
The company will apparently upgrade all three of these devices simultaneously during the month of November for Canadian users. International users will get Android 4.3 sometime during October.
French mobile operator SFR confirmed the Android 4.3 roll out for the three devices in a new chart.
The Galaxy S4 will receive it sometime in October through Kies and OTA. The Galaxy S3 will get the update in November or December through the same methods and the Galaxy Note 2 will have it around the same time.
