Well, it certainly seems to be the day when the Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S III will begin heading out to users all across the world. The S III only recently started receiving the Android 4.3 update for the international unlocked variant in the UK, and now the update is rolling out to the South Korean variant of Samsung’s 2012 flagship (SHV-E210K).

Here’s a list of changes and new features in the Android 4.3 update.

  • - GALAXY GEAR Support
  • - TRIM Support (Makes the device much faster)
  • - Core UI elements updated to the ones on the Galaxy S4 (Galaxy S4′s theme all over)
  • - New Samsung Keyboard
  • - GPU drivers have been updated (Higher GPU benchmark scores)
  • - New Lockscreen: Multiple Widgets, improved ripple effect than Android 4.1.2, ability to change clock size and set a personal message
  • - New Screen modes (From S4): Adapt Display and Professional Photo
  • - Daydream
  • - Driving mode
  • - Actionable notifications
  • - Move-to-SD-card feature
  • - New Camera mode : Sound and Shot
  • - New Additions in Notification Centre
  • - Completely revamped Settings UI (Tabbed interface – Exactly like the Galaxy S4)
  • - Implementation of Voice controls (Let’s you control various parts of the phone using voice commands – Galaxy S4 feature)
  • - New Samsung Apps: Calculator, Clock, Contacts, Gallery, Music
  • - Full screen Samsung apps
  • - New S-Voice (from Galaxy S4)

The update is currently rolling out over-the-air and should be showing up on device over the course of the next few days, though those unwilling to wait can grab the update from Kies or download the firmware from our firmware section to upgrade manually. Find the details of the update down below.

      OTA was about 850MB. There’s a new light effect but the weather widget didn’t change.. and it has KNOX on LTE varient. IT’S WAY DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS VODAFONE FIRMWARE. Pretty stable and fast. Now the kernel changelist is 2016798.

    Are there any issues with the Korean release? Looks like they got a better deal than the international varients of i9300!

    Can this be flashed to the i9300?

          The GT-I9300 is not the US version, there are at least 4 US versions, SGH-i747 (GSM), SGH-T999 (GSM), SGH-I535 (CDMA) and SPH-L710 (CDMA); all dual-core and 2GB of RAM with LTE.

          Then there’s the international GT-I9300 which is a quad-core, 1GB of RAM and 3G.

          There’s the GT-i9305 which is a quad-core, 2GB of RAM and LTE.

          And there are the Korean variants, this firmware update is for those only.

          You might wanna check your phone model before doing any of this.

            And last but certainly not the least, the Japanese versions, SC-06D and SC-04E.

            There’s also a 3G only Korean variant, the SHW-M440S.

      Problem with modem is, when you rollback firmware from 4.3 to 4.1.x to old filesystem EFS v1. If your phone got older firmware with new filesystem, rollback is safe.
