The release of Android 4.3 Update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 hasn’t been confirmed until now, but Deutsche Telekom has confirmed via their own forums that the SGS3 will indeed be updated with the latest Android builds. No official release date has been set, but it should happen in the next few months.
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is the current OS available for the Galaxy S3 and, despite the fact that it is a solid operating system, users will always want to run the latest Android build on their smartphones. It is expected that the Android 4.3 to be released for the Samsung Galaxy S3 only after the Galaxy S3 receives it.
At the moment the only devices running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean are the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the Google Play Editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. However, some developers have already started to work on Android 4.3 Custom ROM test builds for the Galaxy S3 and we expect more stable ROMs to be available soon.
The Android 4.3 OTA Update for Galaxy S3 should bring tons of improvements and tweaks that will make it run faster and add stability to an already great OS. Also, the Galaxy S3 with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean installed will surely feature some new functions from the Galaxy S4 ROM, as Samsung always have tried to pack their devices with the same software features. More info about the update should be available later this month or in September.
Android 4.3 for the Nexus devices came with Auto-complete Dial Pad, Always On Wi-Fi connectivity that will improve the phone location while disabling the GPS and extending the phone’s battery life, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, Improved keyboard, new security options for installed apps, better overall security functions added for your device, OpenGL ES 3.0, new languages support, Bluetooth AVRCP 1.3 that will display song names in your car stereo and other smaller tweaks.
Hopefully Samsung and worldwide carriers are working extensively on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Update for the Galaxy S3, so that the device’s owners will be able to install it sooner and not wait until the end of this year to get their hands on one of the best Android OS builds ever released.
