The leaked Android 4.3 test firmware that we presented to you a while back had a newer build version and at the same time more features and less bugs than the first leak. It was close to the final release but it still wasn’t final. And, unfortunately, neither is the one that we have news of today. But it is a lot closer to the final version. Thanks to the guys at Sammobile you can now install a brand new leaked Android 4.3 test firmware – N7100XXUEMK4 – on your Samsung Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100).
It is believed to be among the last updates for the Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100) and Samsung is likely to release the official update in the following days. It is apparently one of the „final” builds which would mean that in the final version only minor changes will probably take place, such as small fixes or bug removals.
This build has been put through several tests and it’s stability has been proven. Furthermore, its look was improved and the UI has been altered in such a measure that it looks more and more like the Galaxy S4 or the Galaxy Note III. Many features from these phones have been taken and implemented in this update.
