It is finally pushing out, the official Android 4.3 update. Samsung Galaxy Note II (GT-N7105) users in India (the 4G LTE model) have confirmed receiving 700MB worth of software via OTA (over the air) notification for download. The news comes right after a similar build got leaked over the weekend.
Since, the Galaxy Note II was on Android 4.1 all this time, because it has never seen an upgrade to Android 4.2 from Samsung Electronics, this is a really important upgrade for Note 2 owners. Right now we can confirm that the update is available in India and European Nordic countries.
The upgrade brings a lot of new things like Knox, TRIM support, new Clock, Calculator apps, and improvements to the overall performance of the Galaxy Note II, which includes better RAM management among other things. After installation your device should run on build N7100XXUEMK4.
