Samsung is readying the last flavor of Jelly Bean for its Galaxy Note II phablet after making the bits available to the Galaxy S4 and its predecessor, the Galaxy S3.
Popular Samsung fansite Sam Mobile reported that the Android 4.3 firmware was being offered at select service centers. At the time of this writing, it has been confirmed that at least one user in India had his handset upgraded to Android 4.3.
The specific firmware is N7100XXUEMJ9 and appears to have been compiled on October 31. This suggests that Samsung is in the final stages of the firmware testing and might actually release it via OTA and Kies in a matter of days if not weeks. The list of changes hasn’t been published but you’ll most likely be getting the same improvements as did the S3 weeks ago.
With Android 4.4 KitKat already out one may wonder when the South Korean giant might upgrade its supported devices. But don’t hold your breath, the chocolate flavored Android version is probably a quarters ahead. With Samsung’s erratic software release cycle devices like the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 will likely have the 4.4 KitKat bits in late in Q1 2014.
