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

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.

- 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
- Completely revamped Settings UI (Tabbed interface – Exactly like the Galaxy S4)
- Implementation of Voice controls (Let’s you control various parts of the phone using voice commands – Galaxy S4 feature)
- New Samsung Apps: Calculator, Clock, Contacts, Gallery, Music
- Full screen Samsung apps
- New S-Voice (from Galaxy S4)
- Found more? Tell us about them in the comments below!
The new software update is being rolled out in phases, so it may not yet be available in your country at the moment but don’t worry it will arrive very soon. 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.

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?

3 years 1 month ago

Wondering why it hasn’t been released in any other countries since this first release?

3 years 1 month ago

I was wondering the same thing myself. I have been running it on my phone in Australia with no issues.

3 years 1 month ago

Yep it’s working great for me in Australia too, and I added note 3 wallpapers from the app store to make it look like new.

Is the galaxy note 2 (SPH-L900) Getting an update? I hear all these other versions getting theirs what about the sph-L900?

3 years 1 month ago

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

3 years 1 month ago

I there. I also noticed the big font size on messages. Just press up or down volume on messages to choose the right size ;)

3 years 18 days ago

I agree on the big font size too. Even the smallest size is too big! It hurts my eyes. :P

3 years 1 month ago

Even the smallest size is too big for me, disabled stock messaging and installed mysms. It is nice and great

One of the use less update really waste of time its not impressive in compare with galaxy grand

3 years 2 months ago

Hi Guys,

So far it seem to be ok for me and it working fine & at the same time i have rooted my phone with 4.3 update.

I will upload the download link for you guys to download with the root files so please wait, uploading time total is 5hours.

3 years 2 months ago

Yeah, I’m also not having any problems. Got the light effect lockscreen working fine (s3 update was having problems with this). Changes I saw: email app is now white; keyboard doesnt have clipboard anymore! This was awesome :(

3 years 1 month ago

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

3 years 1 month ago

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 :/

3 years 15 days ago

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…

3 years 2 months ago

I’m using it right now and there’s an issue with the sound. When i’m listening to music using playerpro it crash. The audio enhancement is being disabled aside from that everything’s smooth. I’m from PH. Gpu drivers update as per change log is great games runs very smooth.

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…

3 years 2 months ago

screenshots from a n7100 your getting n7105 owners worried…… download is taking forever.

3 years 2 months ago

when the update 4.3 for sgh-i317M???

3 years 2 months ago

Is finish the update for Galaxy note1????

3 years 2 months ago

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….

3 years 2 months ago

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>

3 years 2 months ago

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?!

3 years 2 months ago

Just a tad, isn’t it…
