The Samsung Galaxy S4 has been in the process of receiving the latest Jelly Bean operating system with last year’s flagship devices due to get the software next, and now we have a list of the S4 features that should be coming to the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 with the Android 4.3 update.

Over the last few days the updating of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been taking place with the new firmware slowly making its way around the world, but next in line to receive some new software are the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 from last year.

This should start its journey towards the end of the month, and the update has always been down to bring a number of features across from the Galaxy S4. Going on the update that is currently being rolled out to the S4 owners of the older handsets can expect to see the likes of support for the Galaxy Gear among a number of other things.

These are set to included Samsung KNOX, improved colour reproduction, new Samsung keyboard, new Samsung browser, Samsung Wallet, new camera firmware, improved RAM management, OpenGL 3.0 support, enhanced TouchWiz Launcher, new Reading Mode, and some minor alterations to the UI.

A lot of the improvements will be under the hood which will provide a boost in the handsets performance and battery life, but we should also see a number of new features that were debuted on the Galaxy S4 when it was launched which Samsung promised would be coming to the older handsets.

What new features are you most looking forward to with the Android 4.3 update?

    Err. Not many as I’m already running 4.3 on my note 2 with a custom touch wiz rom with most of the note 3 features working well.
    So unless Samsung add all the note 3 features I for one will not be going near it.
    Check it out on xda

    • lrn2board

      Which rom is it? I cant find a 4.3 touch wiz one…

      • steve

        Well if it is for the note 2 n7100, it is pretty easy to find, but if you want a official release and not a leak, you will have to wait

    • resee

      is the camera any different or no?

      • Dean Jewson

        Still on original camera
        the note 3 / s4 port is being worked on

    • steve

  • Bugz

  • John

    All you do is keep guessing about the update…… Oh it coming it coming. All you did was just predictions after predictions. You guys not really credible to me.

  • LAWANNA B

    Allow me to convey what all, would like to express, in an articulate/educated more mature manner. I, as well as everyone else are excited about the updates, with all of the promised new features. The face lift, with all the bells/whistles are long over do, with such expensive devices. Every would like to believe that Samsung, will be credible, in keeping the companies word. After all, the Note II nor the S3, were purchased, by any means, at a bargin. Samsung will cut it’s own throat in future sales, if they continue to procratstinate!!!!!

  • curiosity

      • Dean Jewson

        I’ve been using it for the past week as my daily driver
        almost no issues now other than small quite insignificant ones that are being worked on on a daily basis by the devs involved in the project

  • manaustralis

    Misleading droid article headline. Trust erosion. Droid you are just another tabloid for me now. Pathetic.

  • bustin idiots

    PEOPLE JUST STOP CLICKING AND READING THESE BILLSHIT ARTICLES. PEOPLE LIKE THIS GUY GET PAID OFF THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE THAT READ THIS GARBAGE. HE WILL PROBABLY REFRESH IT AND REPOST IT AGAIN TOMMORROW TO TROLL FOR MORE HITS. So if anyone is to blame its YOU for not spending a few more seconds looking for a reputable news source. This is also why FB AND OTHER PLACES ARE FILLED WITH GARBAGE SPAM.
