We have already seen the new Android 4.3 leaked for the Google Edition versions of the Galaxy S4 and HTC One. This means this is a real thing and it is getting closer and closer. However, the latest official Android version is still 4.2.2, and this can only be found on a hand-full of devices, and Galaxy S3 and Note 2 are not some of them.It seems odd that Samsung decides to leave their flagship devices behind with the updates, though this does increase sales for new released devices. However we were hearing rumors that Android 4.2.2 is coming this month for the Galaxy S3 just days ago. Now the rumors have shifted to a new theory: according to Temefy, Samsung is working at the 4.3 version for the flagship devices, and is planning to skip the 4.2.2 and go directly to 4.3. This is apparently an information that comes from people involved in Samsung India, but they are still rumors.Knowing how hard Samsung pushes updates to its devices, it would be a lot better to spare everybody some time and just update to 4.3 directly. Meanwhile, Jelly Bean is becoming such an outdated subject, and we would like to see more about the next Android version, Android 5.0 supposedly named Key Lime Pie.
