Samsung is planning to roll out Android 4.3 for the Galaxy S3 and S4 during October. The new flagship smartphone for the electronics super giant, the Samsung Galaxy S4, was launched earlier this year with Android 4.2.2. We have to assume that the Android 4.3 upgrade will be smooth sailing considering that the Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S4 is already running the latest version. Unfortunately the Galaxy Note 2 has not been confirmed for the upgrade however the Galaxy Note 3 will be shipped with the latest version Android 4.3. This should increase the possibility of the latest Android version to be made available for the Note 2 users, however we will have to wait for a confirmation from Samsung.

Initially when the S3 was launched in 2012, the smartphones were stocked with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and soon after an update for Android 4.1.2 was made available. Many S3 users may remember some of the 4G related problems that came with the update and a couple of weeks later, Verizon made available yet another release to resolve the issues. The upgrade was in most aspects a huge success, 4G issues aside, which added support for features like Multi-Window multitasking, Multi-Screen and S Beam’s Auto Share Shot.

Rumor has it since the Android 4.1.2 release, that a possible version upgrade to 4.2.2 will be made available to S3 users. Many corridor chatter suggested that the Android 4.2.2 upgrade would be skipped altogether, with the goal set on a possible Android 4.3 roll-out. Rumors aside and focusing on the confirmed news from Samsung, Galaxy S3 and S4 users will be delighted to hear that Android 4.3 will be made available next month.
