Android 4.3 US update release schedule 2We all know that Samsung always releases updates for the International models first and that US carrier branded devices always have to wait an extra mile until the update gets to them. This is also the case for Samsung Galaxy S4 users that already received Android 4.3 in many countries, while US Galaxy S4 still hasn't.Thanks to we now got our hands on a leaked document that shows us the update release schedule for the major US carriers for the following devices: Galaxy S4, S4 Active, S3 and Note 2. These are the devices that we know will get Android 4.3 this year. Samsung already announced that these devices will get Galaxy Gear support with Android 4.3 by the end of this year. It is actually in Samsung's interest for these devices to be compatible with their new smartwatch, so lucky for us this means we're getting Android 4.3.In the following image you will see the update schedule for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile as suggested by the leaked Best Buy document.Android 4.3 US update release schedule As you can see, Galaxy S3 is the first device to get Android 4.3, after the S4, with Sprint scheduled to release the update on the 6th of November, followed by AT&T and finally Verizon and T-Mobile.It does say that the dates are subject to change, so we might not see the updates as indicated here. If these are the dates for the US updates, then it means that International versions I9300 and N7100 will get the update even sooner. So prepare guys, because you will probably see an OTA update on your device's screen any day now.
