The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update roll out is finally coming to an end it seems as one of the last major devices without the update has finally started to receive Android 4.3 Jelly Bean today, a sign that things are winding down just about two months after the update first started to roll out.
Back in October, Samsung announced a Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, an update that would bring Galaxy Gear support and Samsung KNOX. The company also promised fixes and enhancements that were badly needed since the Galaxy Note 2 hadn’t received a major Android update all year.
In November, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean roll out begun and over the course of several weeks, it hit device after device after device. In December, the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update rolled out, marking the end to the roll out in the United States. It did not, however, mark the end of the global roll out.
As we learned, there were still a number of major carriers waiting to roll out their upgrades. One of them was French carrier SFR which claimed that it would roll out its Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean updates in January due to issues it was having during the testing process. Today, the carrier made good on its promise and we are now one step closer to the completion of the Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 roll out.
The carrier has announced that the Galaxy Note 2 3G Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update is now available to customers. The Galaxy Note 2 LTE Android 4.3 update remains unavailable though it’s expected to touch down sometime this month. As expected, the update brings SFR customers a wealth of features and enhancements.
This update figures to be among the last Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean updates as many carriers have already rolled out their upgrades to the 5.5-inch smartphone. Those who are still waiting for an update should check in with their service provider to see about timing. Information, unfortunately, may be hard to come by.
Most Galaxy Note 2 users have now turned their attention toward the next Android update which figures to be Android 4.4 KitKat. Samsung still hasn’t announced an update for arrival but rumors, and logic, point to the Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.4 KitKat update landing in April alongside the Galaxy S3 Android 4.4 update.
SFR has confirmed Android 4.4 KitKat updates for the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 in January or February but it still hasn’t announced plans for the Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2. Samsung typically waits until much closer to the roll out to announce specifics meaning Galaxy Note 2 owners may have to wait several weeks to hear about their fate.
