Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note 2A few weeks ago, we presented you a leaked Android 4.3 test firmware for Galaxy Note II that was in its early stages. This means it didn't have many of the final features that will be included in the official update.Today, we have news of a new test firmware that has a newer build date, which means it has less bugs and more features. This firmware is very close to the final version. Thanks to Sammobile and their insider, you can now install Android 4.3 on your Galaxy Note 2 N7100 with test firmware XXUEMJ5.This firmware has all the features that the previous leak had, plus a few extra. We know it has the transparent status bar and the new Samsung keyboard. The User Interface was modified so it looks similar to the one on the Galaxy Note 3 or Galaxy S4. Android 4.3 will also come with Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet pre-installed.Samsung is releasing a new test firmware every 2 days, and we are expecting the official Android 4.3 update for the Note II to be released sometime in November. If you want to give Android 4.3 a test, you must know that a test firmware is still unfinished and may have some small bugs and issues. Also, the official update will probably have more features than this one. Still, we have seen users report that this leak is much smoother and faster than the previous one.
