Most manufacturers have finished rolling out the Android 4.3 update to their flagship devices a few months ago. However, carrier variants of smartphones take longer than usual to rollout an update. Proving that is the AT&T branded Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, which is now getting the Android 4.3 update. This water proof droid from Samsung was launched in the U.S. exclusively through AT&T, which meant that the carrier could take its sweet time to rollout the update even though Samsung has finished seeding the update to carriers quite a few months ago. Speaking more about the update, well it is only slightly different from Android 4.2 and will most notably include performance related upgrades and bug fixes. You will not notice any massive visual differences, but the much awaited support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch is bundled with the update. Here’s the complete changelog:
- Samsung Galaxy Gear compatibility
- Drag and drop to uninstall or disable applications
- AT&T Signature Experience preloads such as Kindle, Lookout, City ID, Password Keeper, Games and AT&T Mobile Protection.
If you’re a owner of the Galaxy S4 Active on AT&T, make sure you check for an update by navigating to the Settings. Or you can simply wait for an update notification to pop up on its own.
