According to a new report, Samsung is currently testing the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note 2, although the rumor can’t be verified just yet.

The news comes from Sam Mobile, which has apparently learned that the Android 4.3 tests for Samsung’s second Note version have just begun:

The publication, which has been accurate with previous Samsung-related leaks, speculates that the company will first bring the Android 4.3 update to the Galaxy S4 (October) and Galaxy S3 (October/November), with the Galaxy Note 2 said to receive the latest Android version by the end of the year (late November or December).

Furthermore, Samsung is also said to be testing Android 4.3 on its two Galaxy Mega models, although nothing can be officially confirmed just yet.

Sure, Google may unveil and launch a new Android version by the time Samsung updates its current and previous flagship devices to Android 4.3, but that wouldn’t be the first time something like this would happen.

For what it’s worth, we’ll remind you that the Galaxy Note 3 is officially available in various countries, running Google’s latest operating system. Not to mention that the Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition and the Google Nexus 10 also run Google’s latest OS version.
