Samsung Galaxy Note II LTE (GT-N7105) receives official Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update


NoteII-4.3-Official-Cover

The wait is finally over! Samsung has just started rolling out Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy Note II LTE (GT-N7105). It’s been a long time since Samsung updated the Galaxy Note II to a new version of Android. The Galaxy Note II launched with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and even today the Galaxy Note II is running the exact same version of Android. Samsung never updated the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II to Android 4.2.2 and even also never internally tested a single Android 4.2.2 build for the Note II.

Galaxy Note II users will be pleased to know that the Android 4.3 update is very stable, way more than Galaxy S III’s official update, and it’s amazingly fast as well. There are quite a lot of changes and improvements in the new Android 4.3 firmware over Android 4.1.2. Samsung has completely changed the core UI to the one found on the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3, even the setting app has been completely overhauled with a new tabbed interface. The new update also brings support for the Galaxy Gear, Samsung KNOX and Samsung Wallet. Samsung doesn’t provide an official change log for its updates but after testing a few internal builds and this official one, we can give you folks our own list of changes and improvements we have noticed.

CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS IN ANDROID 4.3 UPDATE
- GALAXY GEAR Support
- TRIM Support (Makes the device much faster)
- Samsung KNOX
- Samsung Wallet (Pre-loaded)
- Better RAM management
- Core UI elements updated to the ones on the Galaxy S4 (Galaxy S4′s theme all over)
- New Samsung Keyboard
- GPU drivers have been updated (Higher GPU benchmark scores)
- New Lockscreen: Multiple Widgets, improved ripple effect than Android 4.1.2, ability to change clock size and set a personal message
- New screen modes (From S4): Adapt Display and Professional Photo
- Daydream
- Driving mode
- Actionable notifications
- Move-to-SD-card feature
- New Camera mode : Sound and Shot
- New Additions in Notification Centre

If your device is carrier branded then it might take sometime as the update has to get improved by the carrier first and only then Samsung will make it available for your device.

    Watch this post get sieged by people asking SamMobile (the wrong folks yet again) about the official 4.3 update for the GALAXY Note II N7100, S III, even S II and Note I; and by folks asking if this firmware works on some other variant of the Note II… Which it doesn’t, I assure you.

    Commence siege in 5… 4… 3… 2…

        Though I did ask for news about the S3′s 4.3 update as well, so I’m a bit of a hypocrite, but I tried to do it nicely ._.

          I saw and it’s ok because you knew what to ask to whom.

          I stand corrected, just look at the guys below demanding firmware updates for other devices… People just don’t learn.

          Either way, I’m glad for both Note II versions.

    WOW There were many leaked versions for Note2 N7100, many N7105 guys were crying, but 1st official update has come to N7105 that too without New S-Pen features (Air Command)…Gr8 Samsung…..

    Never turn to Samsung again in future, this is my last Samsung gadget….

      At least you guys with n7100 were playing with more than 1 leak. We with the n7105 were just waiting… Aren’t you being a little bit selfish?!

    • exo_23 10 months ago said:

      First off, Air Command is an exclusive Note 3 feature. Samsung’s not going to kill the Note 3 by giving the Note II the exact same feature..

      Also, it may be limited to hardware, but I doubt it..

      Although I am disappointed about the camera interface not being changed to the neater interface on the S4>

    It seems that the Samsung guys don’t want upgrade previous versions so they can sell more of the new galaxy models. The s3 firmware version came with many bugs and this version of note 2 don’t have all features of 4.3 firmware…

        Are u sure about clipboard? That is weird, because I have the clipboard

        • rca 10 months ago said:

          Yes, the clipboard key/button on the keyboard is missing (that key on the left side of the space bar where you choose your favorite key to be there). I have the clipboard only on some system apps, like messages and email, etc, but it shows only if I press a text field, like if i wanted to paste some text.

          Do you have that clipboard button on your new Samsung keyboard?

          PS: also, pop-up browser is missing :/

            Same here on my SGS3 – that clipboard button is gone in 4.3. My wife’s S4 has it though – along with a few new features.
            Is it possible that the function has been dropped on ex-flagships? That would suck since this is not something new that has not been added, but something already available that has been taken away from us…

    Honestly for me this has been a nice upgrade. Some of the new features I saw ,
    Keyboard floating mode (like Swiftkey)
    Spam settings in email app
    No floating browser ( i don’t know why they removed it :( )
    Move to SD (very important)
    Feels little bit faster

    Only thing which worries me is the huge font size in messaging app. Anybody behind me can read my messages very comfortably. Tried changing the font size, but still it is too big.

    Battery life is almost the same.
    I had wifi issue At the beginning, but disappeared after a phone reboot.

    Installed KNOX and uninstalled it again because it is useless for me.

    I should say that I have been a Samsung galaxy user for 2+ years and I always hated TouchWiz. But now I am starting to like it :P

    thanks so much guys! it work’s like a charm and I love the never before seen sharpness of the display.

    Just one question: How does the “Country” affect experience, and can it be changed?
    I have an app which refuses to download from Google Play, and shows other strange behaviour. Do I need to flash again once a version for my actual country is available?
