Android 4.3 has now arrived for the T-Mobile Samsung GALAXY Note II
Based on reports from T-Mobile customers sporting the Samsung GALAXY Note II, the eagerly awaited Android 4.3 update has just rolled into town. The update weighs in at a rather hefty 614MB, so make sure that your battery is at least 50% charged and that you are on a Wi-Fi network when you are downloading and installing the update.

The T-Mobile version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II is receiving the Android 4.3 update on Monday

The update brings with it support for the Samsung GALAXY Gear smartwatch along with Samsung KNOX. The latter is the secure container that holds a set of business apps so that you can bring your GALAXY Note II to work, feeling comfortable that no one will be able to infect the apps or spy on them. Pressing the Samsung KNOX icon will bring up a browser, contacts list, email and calendar. At the end of the day, press the icon and you can once again access your personal apps. Samsung developed KNOX so that its devices can be used at companies that allow employees to bring their own device to work.

If you own the T-Mobile branded Samsung GALAXY Note II, you could be looking at about 5 to 6 months of using Android 4.3 before the Android 4.4 KitKat update comes your way. Last month, we showed you a leaked document showing that the international version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II will be receiving Android 4.4 in the March-April time period. Toss in a month or two for carrier testing and we could see Android 4.4 on the device half way through next year.

Why the hell are they delaying the update for Europe? This is really disgusting.
Can any one have any idea when can we expect the update to come in europe(un-branded)?

pretty excited! I really hope that 4.4 will come early next year and bring some changes to the look of touchwiz.

It's not a problem because it's not released for international version yet.

Well i got my update on tmo and it's great so far, my advice would be as soon as it's updated and you are done signing in do a factory reset. I did and no hiccups, no slow downs, no network connection problems, just fast responsive phone. I got rid of root for it because I just don't need it anymore now that I have apps to sd. If you are rooted I suggest triangle away, mobile Odin and download a old stock build from Xda and go through mobile odin, it reads tar files better than zips, just make sure you use triangle away right before you do, thanks Samsung, it's about time we get justice.
