Update to Android 4.3 firmware for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 leaked and is now being explored
It seems that after only a week after Samsung started testing the latest Android platform on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (N7100) a firmware for the device has leaked in the wild and is accessible. The early leak comes from Vietnamese Tinhte by forum member HappyKing.
If you know about XDA forum boards you are probably guessing that already the firmware is up there and not only that but it is ready for download from a couple of mirrors so if you are too enthusiastic but first you might want to see what is the firmware all about.
Of course, if you have decided to really download the firmware, you should keep in mind that even thought the version is claimed stable but you should know that this is a test version so thread carefully and go through the usual back-up checks if you’re planning on doing some flashing.
With this update the Note 2 gets up to speed with its successor Note 3 so it is pretty unlikely for Samsung to release it right away and besides, it has to be made really safe until it is rolled for an update.
What is more, a lot of new features like Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet have been added as well so there is something to actually wait for and expect from the new version. Furthermore we can say that there are reports from users that say that the performance of their devices has increased. Although we cannot confirm this for now it seems that the update might just play important role for the users of the device.
From here on we can only guess what is coming to us software wise and will there be more changes until the final update is released from Samsung. However, we are excitedly expecting the new firmware update of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
