Samsung may not be the best company this year when it comes to updating any of their last-year smartphones with Android 4.2.2, and we’re sure that many of you holding a Galaxy S III or a Galaxy Note II understand this level of frustration, but still, there’s no denying that the company is doing a good job in launching each new smartphone with the latest version of Android. We’ve seen it with ever smartphone that they’ve launched since last year, and if they keep that trend, that should mean good news for the Galaxy Note III.
Samsung’s press event to launch their new iteration to the Galaxy Note brand is scheduled to happen at IFA, and the reason why we don’t even question the launch of the new Galaxy Note, is because they’ve launched this phone religiously at IFA since its first model. There are tons of rumors regarding the hardware, but today we get the first rumor about the software. Reports have it that Android 4.3 will ship with the Galaxy Note III, and if we judge the company’s history, the rumors should be spot-on.
Samsung Galaxy Note III will ship with Android 4.3 out of the box. Samsung has just started testing Android 4.3 internally. #CONFIRMED

Now for those that are still waiting for Android updates, the positive part about the launch of the Note III is that the cycle of smartphone launches ends, and therefore, Sammy shouldn’t have any excuses left to update their old phones.
