According to a tweet sent out by Sam Mobile, which is usually reliable with Samsung related news, the Galaxy Note 3 will launch with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box, which is currently the latest version of Android. Sam Mobile mentioned this in a tweet it sent earlier, claiming this as #CONFIRMED news. Samsung apparently is testing early builds of Android 4.3 internally so that the new Note flagship can have it in time for launch. This makes a lot of sense as we’ve heard reports of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2 skipping the Android 4.2 update to directly get Android 4.3.
Sony was actually the first to come out with a word on its Android 4.3 update rollout plans, but it seems like Samsung will be the first to bring it to action. While the Note 3 might launch with Android 4.3, the likes of the Galaxy S4 and all the preceding flagships might have to wait for the update.
The Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to launch with a 5.7 inch 1080p AMOLED panel, a 13MP camera on the back and a more than decent front facing camera, the Exynos 5420 or the Snapdragon 800 chipset, 3GB of RAM, a beefy battery and its usual suite of TouchWiz features. Samsung will reveal the smartphone during the Unpacked event on September 4 in Berlin.
