The Galaxy Note 2 was launched back in September last year, it came with Android 4.1 pre-installed. Rumor has it that Samsung is testing an official Android 4.3 update for the device. No word as yet on the exact release date, but the update has apparently just recently entered the testing phase, so its likely that it might take a few weeks for it to be rolled out to the public.
According to the folks at Sammobile, Android 4.3 update for Note 2 will be released between November and December. The reason for this is that apparently the company wants its latest phablet, the Galaxy Note 3, to have exclusivity over Android 4.3 for a couple of months before the update is rolled out to its siblings. It is currently the only Samsung device right now that comes with Android 4.3 pre-installed. As per the report, Samsung wants to wait a while before it brings some Android 4.3 features and improvements over to Note 2. More functions apart from the latest TouchWiz interface are expected from Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note 2. Furthermore, it is also being claimed that Samsung has already started testing the Android 4.3 update for its Galaxy Mega series, a launch window for those devices has not been provided as yet.
