Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note II available in service centers, over-the-air rollout to commence soon?

The Android 4.3 update is scheduled to roll out for the Galaxy S3, Note II, and the Galaxy S4 in this month and the next, but while rollout has commenced for both the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 (at least in the US) already, the update for the Note II is nowhere in sight. But that could change quite soon – apparently, Samsung’s service centers already have access to the update, and one user in India was lucky enough to get his Note II updated from a local service center.

The build number of the firmware is N7100XXUEMJ9, while the build date is of October 31st, making us fairly certain that it’s the final version of the update that will roll out officially. At this point, it’s uncertain what the extent of changes and new features are in the update (we’ve asked for some screenshots and info from the one who sent us the confirmation, and will update this post when we get them), but expect to see mostly the same changes as those that arrived on the Galaxy S3, apart from a few new features from the Note 3 for use with the S Pen.

Hang on Note II users, the excruciating year-long wait for your first major update could end very soon. In the meantime, heading to the nearest service center is sounds like a good idea, right?

Update: More screenshots added.



Thanks Bhanu!

I don’t know if this is true. I am from India and I have a Galaxy Note 2. I saw these screenshots and got curious so I went to the service centre to check if this is at all true. They said they don’t have the Android 4.3 update. But they looked as if they were shocked to see me ask this question and probably they must be thinking how I came to know that they have access to the Android 4.3 firmware. I am 100% sure they have access to the Android 4.3 update but they were being hesitant to disclose anything about it. I think the guy who got the update was extremely lucky.

It’s disgusting, will know by now that they were duped into copying other news sites stories without checking the information fist.

the release of the update by a Indian service center is so obviously fake that the news item should be removed off the site.

but they wont.


Click bait…

we all know its about to be released any day, and every time you google for information, there are more and more sites with the same fake story, many of them have copied the news story and published it well after its become common knowledge its fake….

so, now if you google trying to find more recent news, all you get is bombarded by links to the crappy fake stories…

I used to think had a better set of ethical values than to continue showing crap that will just add a few pennies to the bottom line…

sad, so sad

Isn’t it old Snote that n7100 have already? Snote 3 icon is red, as far as i know.

Also does it have air command? And most of it, does the rom has fixed accelerometer, for using as pedometer? (Because note 2 sensor shuts off in sleep mode and pedometer apps cant read anything while screen is off. Not a big deal but it became an obsession for me. :D))

As far as i can see it doesnt have s-pen feature… why? Because he doesnt have scrapbooker installed.

If there would be s-pen feature its necessessary to have it…

Also if there is someone in india thats telling there is no 4.3 update then it should be a fake…

Its sad that people lie to get attention…

Can anyone else confirm that this is real? I honestly can’t believe that Samsung would release an update to India first instead of one of the usual Nordic countries. What’s more surprising is that it’s only available on service centers instead of the usual Kies/OTA update. Check your source again Sammobile. He deleted his tweet.
