The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will arrive with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean from day one. The South Korean giant is believed to be testing the new version of Android, and sources close of Sam Mobile confirmed it via a tweet.
Sam Mobile says "Samsung Galaxy Note III will ship with Android 4.3 out of the box. Samsung has just started testing Android 4.3 internally. #CONFIRMED". So should one trust Sam Mobile and its reliable sources? To some extent, Samsung would like to bring Android 4.3 Jelly Bean powered Galaxy Note 3.
With global network providers are in the favor of new version of android to be installed from day one, then why a reputed player like Samsung would say no. It could affect the performance of Galaxy Note 3 in America and several European markets.
Meanwhile, Germany's Deutsche Telekom ( via All About Samsung ) has confirmed via a forum post that Samsung Galaxy S3 will skip Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update instead Android 4.3 Jelly Bean have been planned. So that means, there are full chances to see Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to feature Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on the announcement day itself. As of now, only one telecom operator is willing to support Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. In countries like India, the decision to push firmware update is in the hands of a tech vendor.
