Yes, we are well aware that Samsung is all set to roll out the next iteration of the Galaxy Note device this coming September 4th, but this does not mean the South Korean company has forgotten all about the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. In fact, the Galaxy Note 2 is confirmed to be on the receiving end of the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system update, and with that, you can also have Android Device Manager run on it.

To know that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is well on its way is a comforting thought, especially when the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean did happen to frustrate owners of the Galaxy Note 2 plenty in the past due to a seemingly never ending wait. Telstra, an Australian carrier, has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 2 will skip the Android 4.2 update, and jump straight into Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead.
It must be noted that while Android 4.3 Jelly Bean was introduced as recently as July 24th at a Google press event, a speedy confirmation like this is always more than welcome. Chances are, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be the last of the Jelly Bean updates before Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie hits the deck. We await official word from Samsung as to the actual release date of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Note 2 with bated breath.
