android-4.3-easter-screen-feature

Verizon has begun rolling out the Android 4.3 update to its variant of the Galaxy S III (SCH-I535), giving Samsung’s yesteryear flagship support for the Galaxy Gear and many other new features and improvements, like faster performance, KNOX functionality, improved camera firmware and modes, upgraded interface, new Samsung keyboard, screen modes and other Samsung apps, new lockscreen, and lots more.

Here’s the full Android 4.3 changelog:

  • - 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
  • - KNOX included
  • - 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 – build number JJSS15J.I535VRUCML1 – is making its way to devices already and should finish its rollout in the next few days. If you’re unwilling to wait, you can do a manual check in the Settings » About phone » Software updates menu, or grab the firmware from our firmware section once it becomes available.

Thanks, Ziyad!

        Has anyone got the OTA for the international version after Samsung resumed it or no? I mean, should I update it manually or should I wait? I can wait if it is gonna be available in a week or two. I’m in Pakistan.

    What’s interesting is that carrier-branded s3′s are getting the update before unbranded, which makes no sense. UK is the only unbranded firmware that came out for i9300, the rest are all vodafone!

    Hi All,
    I have noticed that S3 i9300 with JB 4.1.2 has problems managing memory. When you clear the memory it drags itself mine even though it cleans it. If you go there again after the first cleansing it appears that there are programs in the background that are not cleared. Perhaps what makes the new software have a problem there anyway despite new software with JB 4.3

    Regards

    when 4.3 update reaches india? really sucks. at least they should have given 4.2.2 in case they are not able to give 4.3 because of marketing strategies. Come on samsung it enough customers who bought S3 are not happy with you and also the new mobiles that are coming with 4.3 but s3 remains with 4.1.2 not really fare. you really lack in software updates. Local companies mobiles are coming with 4.2.2. if you continue this kind shit to improve the sales of new mobiles you will not do good in 2014 things are getting change.

    Last week I installed Spanish Android 4.3 update. The configuration menu has changed. I can’t find the widgets I had before for the screen when the phone is blocked, specially the stocks bottom slide bar with up to 20 configurable stocks from Yahoo Finance. It was very useful to watch over my stocks without having to unblock my phone. Where is it?
