Just yesterday, leaked test firmware for the Samsung Galaxy S4 hit the web, Android 4.3 in tow. Now it’s the Galaxy Note 2’s turn with the newly leaked N7100XXUEMI6 build.

As you might have inferred from the build name, this Android 4.3 test firmware is meant for the Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100. The firmware is a fairly early build that was originally leaked to Vietnamese Tinhte forums earlier today, and has since made its way over to the XDA Developer’s forum as well.

So what’s new here? While we don’t have a full list of details by any means, we do know that the update brings with it many of the UI elements and special features found on the Galaxy S4 and Note 3. The update is also said to offer speed improvements and other performance enhancements.

Like the leaked S4 test firmware, the Note 2 update also includes Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet.

Due to bugs and other issues that can arise with installing leaked firmware, you are probably better off waiting for Samsung to release an official Android 4.3 update. If you have your heart set on installing the test firmware, keep in mind that you are potentially putting your handset at risk – so proceed with caution.

To grab the firmware or learn more, you’ll want to head on over to the XDA Developer’s Forum.
