We already know that Samsung will be announcing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 at the start of IFA 2013 on September 4th, but one of the biggest questions is what version of Android it will ship with. The LG G2 was announced only this past week and confirmed it will be shipping with Android 4.2.2, which was disappointing but not surprising, so it had us really wondering what difference a month would make. Well, SamMobile has confirmed in a tweet that the Note 3 will be coming with Android 4.3:
Samsung Galaxy Note III will ship with Android 4.3 out of the box. Samsung has just started testing Android 4.3 internally. #CONFIRMED

Â This is great news for everyone who is looking at getting the Note 3 as this means they’ll have all the newest bells and whistles that comes with Android 4.3 and gives them a head-start as one of the first OEM phones to come with Android 4.3; hopefully this means Samsung will also be ahead of the curve for the release of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie later this year.
Who’s excited about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and/or is planning to get one?
