Android 4.3 starts rolling out to the International Galaxy S 4

Samsung has not been famous for their software updates this year, or at least not as famous as they were with their Galaxy S II line-up. All their 2012 line-up of devices is still stuck on early versions of Android 4.1, and this has proven to be quite annoying for most of the people who trusted Samsung with their new Galaxy line-up.

Still, it seems that the company is doing things differently now, but for the benefit of those who upgraded and not those who waited. Android 4.3 has already begun to roll out to the LTE international variant of the Galaxy S 4 (I9505) yesterday, and today we’re already seeing the Exynos Octa variant (I9500) receive the update as well. This brings support for the Samsung Galaxy Gear, KNOX, Samsung Wallet, the company’s new Reading Mode, and obviously some improved performance.

There’s still no word on when our US variants will receive the update, remember we’re using the (SGH-I337), and for those of you rocking the international Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III, things could change for the good in November, though again, for those of you that chose to go unlocked.
