Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Getting Android 4.3 N9005XXUBMJ1 Firmware Update

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 only debuted on the European market a week ago, but the Korean company already started to push the first OTA firmware update for the 5.7-inch smartphone.

While OTA update for Galaxy Note 3 will let the Android version unchanged its main purpose is to bring improved stability, as reported in the official Samsung update advisory.

The firmware update weighs 30 MB, so I can say it’s safe for you to download it using your data plan. It’s also worth noting that the N9005XXUBMJ1 for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is only available for the LTE-friendly unlocked handsets. As I was mentioning above the software update is still using the Andorid 4.3 platform, with the build number labelled JS15J.

For the time being there’s no information about any changes performed to the Galaxy Note 3 region-locking.

In case you don’t know it already I remind you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 boasts about a 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, while being powered by a Snapdragon 800 chispet with quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. The Note 3 technical specs list also includes 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB microSD-expandable storage, a feature-packed 13 MP camera with 4K and 1080p@60fps video recording, and all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone: LTE, all standards of WiFi, NFC, IR blaster, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, and microUSB 3.0.

The terminal leaves the factory gates pre-loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, customized with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz Nature UX interface.

Have you received the N9005XXUBMJ1 update on your European Samsung Galaxy Note 3? Please let us know in the comments section below.

    Got my update a few hours ago and whilst I can’t see any differences in use, what I have noticed is that the screen doesn’t freeze anymore. Sometimes I would scroll the screen and it would stop and become unresponsive, pressing the home key and resuming corrected the fault, but this was not something I expected from a brand new phone. Anyway, not had any futher incidences so I suspect this ” stability ” update did what it was supposed to do : )

    • lakshman

      you are right. i have noticed the same problem before the update. the current update solves the issue.

    • Lamont

      Ditto. I was having the same issue. Just got the update. Hopefully it solves that issue. I was hoping it was the update for the processor. Oh well.

  • Prakash Gupta

    In Mumbai, India today i got this update on my Note 3

  • Garrant Johns

    Yeah, Mine downloaded this yesterday in the UK and it killed the phone, had to put it in recovery mode and after many attempts at the various options, I had to finally reset the phone and reinstall from scratch. Not impressed with the Note 3 so far, first couple of days it went into a boot loop, once when powered up and once when I was halfway through listening to voicemails and now the full rebuild with subsequent restores taking up the rest of the day. Never had these problems with my Note 2


    i also received the update in kuwait on my note 3 lte but there is no changes.

  • Ahmed

    Updated my Note 3 LTE N9005 but now no LTE…

  • Jeremy Giam

    New interface for camera modes for main camera.

  • I updated my Note 3 in Canada, OTA. and it installed fine. No problems at all. I don’t see a noticeable difference, but I’m sure that between Google and Samsung, they have made improvements. I’m looking forward to comments on differences on this Update.

    I’m new to the Note 3 , Just upgraded from the Note 2…. The Note 3 is Awesome..

    No more iPhone for me
