Samsung “reviewing” Android 4.3 update plans, isn’t naming any devices just yet

Samsung-display

Google unveiled Android 4.3 today, and it will begin rolling out to Nexus devices immediately (and “soon” for the Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S4), but for owners of non-Nexus devices it will be a considerable wait as usual, as manufacturers get down on adapting their custom skins to the newest version of Android, a job they’re nefariously slow at.

Samsung has apparently spoken out officially on their Android 4.3 update plans to TechRadar, and we’re afraid their response wasn’t very encouraging. Samsung UK had this to say:

Samsung UK will confirm upgrade plans to Android 4.3 to selected Galaxy devices in the coming months”

The company didn’t name any devices, not even their flagship Galaxy S4, and while rumors have been flying around that at least the Galaxy S III and Note II will get Android 4.3 directly instead of 4.2.2 (it has been confirmed for the Note II), it seems we’ll have to wait a while before they finish “reviewing” their plans and give us an official list of eligible devices.

Android 4.3 isn’t really that huge an upgrade nor very desirable, but it’s still disappointing to hear that nothing is finalized yet. However, knowing Samsung, we can rest assured that they’ll beat other manufacturers to the punch and probably be the first to start rolling out the update, and we’ll be sure to try to get our hands on test versions and make them available to you whenever possible.

    Ok let’s start guessing!

    Devices I think that will get the update for sure:
    Galaxy S4
    Galaxy S4 Mini
    Galaxy S4 Zoom
    Galaxy Note III
    Galaxy S3
    Galaxy Note II
    Galaxy Note 10.1
    Galaxy Note 8.0
    Galaxy Mega 6.3
    Galaxy Duos 5.7
    Galaxy Camera
    Galaxy Camera NX
    Galaxy Tab 7.0
    Galaxy Tab 8.0
    Galaxy Tab 10.1

    I wonder what Samsung will do with the Galaxy S2, Note and Tab 7.7. Their processor is as good as the one in the Galaxy S4 Zoom, Tab 3 7.0 and Tab 3 8.0 so they can’t blame the processor for being to slow or the memory being to low. So I’m curious to see how that will unfold, if they would be so kind to upgrade the S2, Note and Tab 7.7 to Android 4.3 they would be really badass and killing the competition (update wise).

      Forgot one thing though. The Exynos 4212 (S4 zoom, Tab 3.0 7.0/8.0) has the same GPU clocks as the Exynos 4412 (S3, Note 10.1/8.0, Camera) due to the fact it is 32nm instead of 45nm. So that’s one area were it beats the Exynos 4210 (S2, Note, Tab 7.7).

    From what I remember then if Samsung wants to release 4.3 for say the Note then they have to have all of it’s functionality wokring. This includes OpenGL ES 3, which the Mali GPU doesn’t have in the Note/s2 (and maybe more). So Forget that fully working, however this doesn’t stop projects such as Cyanogenmod from releasing an update (although Samsung’s policy has pretty much ruined their attempts.)

    He’s tired of all these manufacturers that we lay nearly 50,000 models and are not able to update us on our devices because it is expensive to develop updates of work of each of them. Even buying a high end one is not even sure of the update. That’s why now I will not buy that mobile Google, I do not give a cents to builders who put in full pockets and mocks us!

    Samsung is showing a poor performance in updating their devices.

    Especially I read & heard from friends about frustration with the S3, which still has the same bugs since months, to sell the new models like S4. Bad policy imho.

    Next device will be a an iphone or HTC.

    I expect Samsung Note 2 and Samsung Note 10.1 to be updated first. We deserve it after seeing all other older models being updated to 4.1.2 and more recent models being updated to 4.2.2 .

    We deserve the next Android 4.3 update NOW.
