galaxynoteiiFor a month or more, the Galaxy series of smartphones and phablets has been on the list for Android 4.3 software, but nobody could be certain what day they would be getting it.  According to Samsung, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software started to roll out to international handsets just this week and now it looks like those that still have the device in the United States, will be getting the same update.  The initial downloads will be going through the AT&T and Sprint networks and the update will bring support for the new Galaxy Gear, as well as the Samsung KNOX security suite.

You can purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note III at a reduced price tag stating at $199.

When the rollout schedule appeared weeks ago, the Galaxy Note 2 was going to be updated around the 20th of November and it looks like the company held good on the promise.  The initial schedule had the AT&T and Sprint models of the Galaxy Note 2 getting updated to Jelly Bean and that is exactly what is happening.  The bad thing about the update is that there is no other indicator right now as to what devices are still out there that will be getting the update.

Samsung just pulled the Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S3 due to some issues that were not known right away, but would need further testing.  Sprint has confirmed what Samsung is saying about the new software noting that HD voice compatibility, Galaxy Gear support and Samsung KNOX will be included with the Jelly Bean update.  Other smaller bug fixes and enhancements will also be included.  Sprint is offering the update over-the-air, as with most updates, but the company also made note that the download and installation will take some time to complete.  T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless should be next in line to get the updates out to subscribers.

Those that are getting the update notification should keep in mind that both the Galaxy S3 and the S4 had issues when updating to the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software.  If anything is out of the ordinary, it should be reported so that Samsung, Sprint or AT&T can take corrective action before issues get out of hand for the rest of the public.  The update for the other Galaxy devices was halted first because of issues that arose when the software first hit the market in Korea.

You can purchase the Galaxy Note 3 at a discounted purchase price starting at $199.
