Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) also gets official Android 4.3 update


Samsung surprised us yesterday by releasing the official Android 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9505). We also reported that the Exynos variant (GT-I9500) along with the Galaxy S3 is expected to get the update some time next week but guess what – Samsung surprised us again by releasing it today!

This really took us by surprise as Samsung was known to often have delays when rolling out android updates on most of their devices. If this keeps up there’s no telling when Samsung will release the 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 (expected next week) and the Galaxy Note 2 (expected by december). Keep it up Samsung!

Same as the S4 LTE, the 4.3 update for the Exynos variant will roll out in phases so expect an OTA update soon on your device. And to some of you who cannot wait to try it, you can always flash the firmware through ODIN. Note that this update includes all the KNOX security updates so think twice before flashing.
