Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was the first Samsung device to receive Android 4.3 Jellybean update. Infect it was the first non-Nexus device to receive such hostage. In August 2013, Samsung had launched Google Play Edition for its flagship Galaxy S4. At that time company had promised to come with actual 4.3 JB update somewhere during October this year. Keeping their words up, Samsung has launched official Android 4.3 Jellybean ROM update for Galaxy S4. This update is in its initial phase (in terms of rollout) so we don’t have exact information about its features and compatibility. However we have some top level reports on basis of which I will try to jot down some of important aspects of this major update.

This update allows you to interface your S4 with Galaxy Gear smart watch. It is a nice option for all the users who want to move towards next level of mobility. Smart watch will provide you enhanced connectivity with calling interface and much more. You can interface it with your smartphone to keep a continuous check on your mobile activities.

This update enhances the connectivity features in terms of less power for Bluetooth and OpenGL ES3.0 support. Restricted profiles are also there which improves the security factor.

This update brings updates for managing the RAM part more effectively. Better RAM utilization opens the door for improved multi-tasking and better processing results. There are some modifications in display unit with new TouchWiz launcher and keyboard. New browser with advanced reading mode is also added to the entire surface that is backed well with new camera firmware. Samsung KNOX feature is also there with the new firmware. So in all this new upgrade will modify your Galaxy S4 in almost all the aspects including better display, camera and browsing. I will share the complete list of features once they will go official.

For now this update has been rolled out in Germany. Company will soon launch it in other countries. It is launched for Galaxy S4 LTE GT-I9505 model and still there is a big question for all Galaxy S4 Exynos (GT-I9500) users. Company is yet to announce the update availability for this model. In India, we can expect it to hit somewhere during early or mid-November. I am sure, developers will soon come up with some manual method for this official ROM. I will keep you updated about the same whenever it will be announced. It will be launched through OTA carrier so you will have to wait for some more weeks.
