Google Releases Android 4.3 for Google Play Edition HTC One and Galaxy S4


Hot off the 4.3 kernels being released this morning for the Google Play Edition HTC One and Google Play Edition Galaxy S4, the official update is now being released over the air. Since it is 4.3, users with these phones (including ourselves) will get Bluetooth Low Energy, TRIM technology, OpenGL E3 3.0, and other improvements.

Our personal Google Play Edition HTC One hasn’t gotten the update yet, but as soon as it does, we’ll let you know if we spot anything specific to these devices as part of 4.3.

UPDATE: According to XDA user Aerys, the 4.3 update enables the IR blaster on both phones, which means you can control your TV with your phone, just like on the Touchwiz and Sense versions.
