Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 update image surfaces
Many owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3 are waiting for the Android 4.3 update to release. Samsung has pledged that the update will begin rolling out in October, and as a teaser for those waiting, a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Android 4.3 image has surfaced.
Earlier today we detailed some feature claims for the Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3, hot-on-the-heels of a rather blurred image that came to light showing the device was running the next OS update. Now a very clear image has leaked that purports to be a screenshot of the Galaxy S4 running Android 4.3.
The image you can see here shows Android 4.3 build XXUBMA8 on the Galaxy S4 I9500 model with the Exynos Octa-core processor. The update is expected to bring some of the features include on the new Galaxy Note 3 that is just about to release, as well as stability and performance improvements.
Changes include always on Wi-Fi scanning and OpenGL 3.0 and as well as this it’s expected that this 4.3 update will offer support for the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch. At present the Galaxy Gear is only compatible with the Note 3 that is shortly to release.
Samsung hasn’t given a precise date for when Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will start rolling out to the Galaxy S4, but it’s likely that unlocked models will be among the first to receive the update, followed by carrier versions.
