Galaxy Note 2 update to Android 4.3 test firmware XXUEMI6
Amazing, after Galaxy S4 getting Android 4.3
from a leaked firmware, it's now Samsung Galaxy Note 2's time to get the latest Android 4.3.
We have been waiting for Samsung to give us something, especially knowing that they started testing Android 4.3 on Galaxy Note 2.
We are now happy to introduce you, Android 4.3 N7100XXUEMI6 for Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Firmware XXUEMI6 is a test firmware, and by the looks of it, it's in the early stage of development. As we said earlier, Samsung has only been testing 4.3 on Note II for a short while. The test firmware was leaked on forum tinhte.vn, by member HappyKing.
Because the firmware is in an early stage, you can expect it to be a little buggy, and also to lack certain features that you might expect to see in Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note II.
Just to make an idea, here are some of the things that have been added in this test Android 4.3 firmware: updated UI to look more like S4/Note 3; many of the S4 features have been added; The firmware comes with Samsung KNOX and Samsung Wallet pre-installed; and that's about it, except of course for the things that are changed to increase performance and stability.
As we said earlier, this test firmware is one of the firsts to come for Galaxy Note 2, so you should expect more features to be added when the official update gets released.
