Samsung is now testing all flagships with the latest Android 4.3, but this doesn't mean that they are ready to release the update. However it gets us a little closer.
We have the confirmation from Sammobile that Galaxy Note 2 is now finally in the works for a 4.3 update.
Expected release dates for Android 4.3
The first device that is expected to get updated is of course the Galaxy S4
. Being their latest flagship all the attention is oriented towards this one. Samsung wants to keep their main payers happy. We are expecting Android 4.3 for Galaxy S4 to arrive in October.
The next device in line is actually the Galaxy S3
. Even though it is an older flagship, there hasn't been much attention put in updating it to a new Android and this made a lot of users unhappy. However this time it seems Samsung is keeping the S3 on the list for Android 4.3, with a launch being expected by the end of October,
if not then the beginning of November.
The most unfortunate device is the Galaxy Note 2
. Of course, this is still an important device in Samsung's line, but as you know, Galaxy Note 3 is already available for sale
and Samsung has to leave some space for old Note 2 owners to upgrade to the new model. If an update was released today there would be a lot less buyers for the Note 3, and that's not what a giant like Samsung wants. This means we are expecting the Note 2 update to Android 4.3 to come in December.
Maybe with some luck Samsung will release it in late November.
Sammobile also tells us that Samsung is working on the Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy Mega
So keep on eye here because October is getting closer and closer and we are already expecting a lot of goodies to come, such as the new Nexus 5 with Android 4.4
or the 4.3 update for Samsung's flagships.
