Samsung Galaxy S III running Android 4.3?

According to a recent leak, Samsung is planning on skipping Android version 4.2.2 altogether for Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note and heading straight towards 4.3 Jelly Bean. A picture of S III featuring 4.3 Jelly Bean was also released from the same source i.e. Samsung’s R&D centre in India to confirm this piece of news.

The news is expected to be officially released on the 24th at Google’s event this week. Rumour has it that there are two professional teams working simultaneously on the updates for both versions of Android for Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note respectively. But because of the constant hard work and providing endless updates Samsung might just dump version 4.2.2 and will focus all of its energy on 4.3 Jelly Bean.


The basic reason for the delay in the update for Galaxy S III to Android 4.2.2 was because after some testing Samsung decided to release the update of 4.3 and skip a step altogether.

S III, released in 2012 is still a very powerful Samsung product. with a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4 chipset, 1 GB of RAM, a 4.8″ HD (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED display and a 2100 mAh battery life, fast Android OS updates only makes the whole package more desirable for this once-a-flagship 2013 mid-range option. And that is also why Samsung remains to be on the top of the list because no other company provides such rapid updates.
