Yes, a pre-release test build has been released to the masses which incorporates a lot of the changes that will be in the Android 4.3 update to the Note 2, which include plenty of updates and features that are from the Galaxy S4 and its new brother, the Galaxy Note 3. It appears that the update is still being heavily worked on, so it’s likely that the test build seen here won’t be the exact version that we get whenever Android 4.3 finally drops on the Note 2, but it should be a pretty good indication of what to expect in general.
As per the source article, the test build is designed for the GT-N7100 model, so if you’re interested to check out how this test build runs on your Note 2, go to the source link here or just click the download link below. Be warned though that the zip file is a hefty 1.2GB so be prepared for the download time.
For further instructions, please hit the source link and as always, make a backup before you flash this unofficial build on your Note 2.
It’s exciting to know that the official Android 4.3 update is finally just around the corner for Note 2 owners, and hopefully this means Android 4.3 is just as imminent for the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3 as well. If you try the test build, let us know how you find it.
