With word that the Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II would be skipping Android 4.2.2 and heading straight to Android 4.3, a leaked picture from the same source that tipped that story, shows the Samsung Galaxy S III wearing a test version of the next Android build. The device in the picture allegedly belongs to someone who works for Samsung’s R&D center in India.
According to the tipster, there are two teams working on the update with one team slaving over a hot Samsung Galaxy S III while another team is working tirelessly on updating the Samsung GALAXY Note II to Android 4.3. If the next iteration of Jelly Bean is introduced next week, the word is that Samsung is going to dump Android 4.2.2 completely.
While a test build of Android 4.2.2. has already been seen for the Samsung Galaxy S III, a tweet from SamMobile in June said that the reason for delaying Android 4.2.2. on that model, as well as on the GALAXY Note II, had to do with testing the new version of TouchWiz on the devices first. Now it seems that it might be too late for the 4.2.2 build as Samsung seems ready to go straight ahead to Android 4.3 with both models
