Samsung Galaxy Note 2 watermarked

Rumors of Android 4.3 soon coming to the Galaxy S4, S3 and Note 2 have been circulating the internet, but now we have a bit of proof. French carrier SFR has released a roadmap table with information about their devices’ upcoming OTA updates. According to SFR, the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 should be getting Android 4.3 Jelly Bean sometime in November-December, while the almighty Galaxy S4 is set to receive it in October.

Now, we are not sure how long it will take our carriers to catch up. We know how American carriers can be and don’t expect most of them to be on time, but at least we know Samsung is almost ready to get things going. The rumor confirms previous leaks about the Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 update release date, so it could be a precise estimate from SFR.

Odds are Nexus devices will be rocking Android 4.4. KitKat by then, but that doesn’t meanNote 2 and Galaxy S3 users shouldn’t be excited. It’s nice to see Samsung hasn’t forgotten its older-generation devices quite yet. Not to mention, it means your devices will be compatible with the Galaxy Gear!
