The Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3, JellyBean update started rolling out for T-Mobile users this week.
TmoNews reports that Galaxy Note 2 owners on the carrier have been sending messages to the publication stating that the new software is ready for download and installation. However, T-Mobile's Galaxy Note 2 support sections do not mention the update at this time.
The firmware will be available OTA or through Samsung KIES. Users that haven't received a notification to update can check for it in the Settings menu.
This is the second Android 4.3, JellyBean update for the Galaxy Note 2 to roll out in recent weeks as Sprint's version also became available recently.
The final version of the firmware began rolling out to the carrier's customers at the end of last month. Android 4.3 brings a slew of changes to the Galaxy Note 2 such as TouchWiz refresh to match the theme from the Galaxy S4 and Note 3, a new lockscreen with multiple widgets, adjustable clock size and personal message, actionable notifications and daydream mode.
Users will also be able to move apps to the SD card and will have new screen modes such as Adapt Display and Professional Photo. TRIM support will be added to improve performance along with Galaxy Gear support, Driving Mode, voice commands and Samsung KNOX compatibility.
The update also rolled out for AT&T users OTA in November and Note 2 owners in Canada earlier this month.
The Galaxy Note 2 launched back in the fall of 2012 and has become one of Samsung's most successful handsets to date. The device was followed up by the fast selling Galaxy Note 3, which debuted in the fall of this year.
