That’s right, Android 4.3 for T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 is rolling out right now. The update has already been released for a number of other Samsung smartphones on rival U.S. carriers, T-Mobile has been slightly late in rolling it out, the update didn’t come out on the day that was mentioned on the leaked release schedule.

Apart from changes to the TouchWiz user interface and a few visual enhancements, Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note 2 brings support for Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. It also brings the improvements that are part and parcel of Android 4.3. The update weighs in at just over 615MB, so you might want to be connected to a strong Wi-Fi connection prior to downloading it. Due to the fact that T-Mobile is rolling out the update in stages, it might take some time before it ultimately pops up in your area.
