T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 getting Android 4.3

While having to deal with some of the issues raised when the Samsung Android 4.3 rollout went awry, carriers have been slow to accept the fixed version and roll it out to their end users. However, T-Mobile has announced that the much-anticipated Android 4.3 Jellybean update is now rolling out for Galaxy Note 2 devices on their network.

Since back peddling over the initial release of Android 4.3, fixes have been provided that resolve many of the issues found in the ill fated rollout. With those fixes in place and no reports of any more issues, carriers have deemed it proper to continue to roll out the Jellybean update. T-Mobile has jumped on board and is now providing an OTA update for the Galaxy Note 2 for Android 4.3.

Android 4.3 Features for Galaxy Note 2

  • GALAXY GEAR Support
  • 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

    Hey Sterling,
    Yes I am. I hold it down but only Microphone, Handwriting, Clipboard, Settings and Keyboard Select are visible. This is the T-Mobile Note 2, so I don't know if it even has emoji.

    I sure hope Verizon gets the upgrade here in the U.S. I'm supposed to get the Galaxy Gear for xmas. would suck to have the watch and couldn't use it.

    Everything's working smoothly. my only problem is, im not sure if emoji was added or not. I've seen emoji on S4 models and Note 3 models. it's got me wanting it more and more.

      Hey Ricardo, are you using the stock Samsung keyboard? I've noticed that I have to hold down the microphone button on that keyboard for the emoji option to show up.
