Global variant of the Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) getting Android 4.3

Galaxy S3The Android 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 was halted recently due to some last minute issues that surfaced. Samsung issued a brief explanation about the delay and assured users that the update rollout would resume soon. The day has finally come as global variants of the Galaxy S3 have started getting the Android 4.3 update. Galaxy S3 units with the model number GT-I9300 are the lucky recipients of the update, although a little late in the day as Android 4.4 is already here. The Android 4.3 update is being rolled out via OTA and through Samsung Kies, so users can try getting the update manually if the update notification hasn’t been spotted yet.

The Galaxy S3 will reportedly get the Android 4.4 update by March or April and by then we will already have the next best thing in the form of the Galaxy S5. Which will be an ideal time to upgrade for many users as it will have been two years since the Galaxy S3 came out. So we’re not sure if owners of the smartphone are too excited about the update, although it’s reassuring to know that Samsung has an update in tow.
