The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS has been officially announced earlier today and it seems like it doesn’t bring any major changes to the overall UI, but there are still some interesting things about it. Also, it should be pushed out starting today for all Nexus devices, while the Google Play Edition versions of the Galaxy S4 and HTC One should receive it soon.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean brings several new functions such as the Bluetooth 4.0 Smart technology which is using much less power and offers better speeds than before. It should hit all the latest flagship phones by the end of this year, but only the phone’s that aren’t carrier-locked, as you all know that the US carrier are always taking their time before allowing their phones to be updated.
Users who won’t get this update in the next few days, weeks or months can easily start looking for a flashable Odin file and upgrade their phones. Such leaks should happen immediately after a single build enters testing phase and then you will be able to enjoy all the latest Android 4.3 changes.
So, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OTA Update will brings the following changes: Google Play Games app and service added as individual tool, Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth LE – Low Energy, Bluetooth AVRCP, OpenGL ES 3.0 support that will add improved graphics, Background Wi-Fi location, Restricted Profiles which is an extension added for the MultiUser support used on tablet devices, Dial Pad Autocomplete, Faster user switching, easier text input, DRM APIs and multiple other minor changes added to the overall UI performance.
Afrikaans, Amharic, Hindi, Swahili, Zulu, Hebrew and Arabic RTL languages are now supported with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update.
Along with the release of Android 4.3 OS, we also got the new Google Nexus 7 tablet device. This is a new and improved model of last year’s 1st-gen Nexus 7 tablet.
The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is only a minor update over the Android 4.2.2 build, as it doesn’t bring any major new features, as everyone is expecting the next Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie to be a big release. The next Android OS release should be ready for a release later this year.
So, what do you think about this new OS? Do you plan on upgrading your device with it when it will be available?
