Samsung Galaxy S4 Manual User Guide for Samsung Galaxy S4 Owners. Include Specifications, Price List and Latest News Update

Samsung Galaxy S4 Updated to Android 4.3 in October

Samsung Galaxy S4 updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean starting October. This lines up well with what was previously reported about the S3 skipping Android 4.2.2, and going straight to 4.3.

That’s much welcome news, even if some might not like the idea of waiting yet another month or so for the update, especially those on the S3. As for the Note 2, Samsung failed to say anything about it, which is sad considering it is yet to receive any major update since its launch, and for a flagship device that carries the entire phablet market on its shoulders, that’s disappointing and very deserving of the criticism from users.

Android 4.3 will include mostly under-the-hood changes, such as OpenGL 3.0 support, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, always-on Wi-Fi location reporting even if Wi-Fi is off, support for more languages, and performance improvements. Expect to see some of the new features from the Galaxy Note 3 as well. Android 4.3 added a handful of features, but not a lot you can see in terms of user interface.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Updated to Android 4.3 Key features:

  • Support for Bluetooth low energy
  • Rescricted access
  • Dial pad auto complete
  • improvements to Photo Sphere
  • 4K resolution support
  • Improved DRM APIs
  • OpenGL ES 3.0 support for better game graphics

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will almost surely also get the newer Android 4.4 KitKat. However, since it  isn’t clear when Google will launch the new version of the OS. In any case, Android 4.4 should be out before the end of the year. We’ll let you know more after that.
