A new Android 4.3 test build has been leaked for the Google Play Ediiton Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505G). Just a few days ago, Google sent out invitations for its July 24th Android event, but that’s not stopping the leaks. This new test build was leaked on XDA forums as an odin package for the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505G) but since then it has been ported to the international-LTE variant of the Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) and a few American variants, as well.

The first ever Android 4.3 test build leaked for the Google Play Edition Galaxy S4 carried JWR66N as its build id and this new test build carries a much newer build id JWR66V, built on July 8.

Compared to the previous leak, the new build doesn’t bring anything new to the table instead of a few fixes – previous leak stopped the CPU from going into an idle state which caused a huge battery drain, this has been fixed in this new build. The new firmware is reportedly much snappier and smoother than the previous leak, as well.
