    Deutsche Telekom: Galaxy S III will get Android 4.3


    Last updated: August 8th, 2013 at 06:27 UTC+02:00

    German carrier Deutsche Telekom via its official forum has confirmed that its Galaxy S III variant will get Android 4.3. The confirmation is interesting because there's a strong rumour of Samsung skipping Android 4.2.2 for Android 4.3 for the Galaxy S III and though the carrier talks about the variant they sell, we can assume the same applies for the rest of the variants as well. Unfortunately we don't have a release date yet but the update could arrive later this year after Samsung's current flagship phone, Galaxy S4 gets the upgrade.

    We exclusively brought the Android 4.2.2 update for our Galaxy S III readers but last month we also saw a Galaxy S III running Android 4.3 giving more credence to the rumour.

    Android 4.3 is more or less the same as Android 4.2.2 on the outside but it brings in some improved performance.
