The OTA update should be showing up on devices in the next few hours, though users can also update via Kies or download the firmware from our firmware section and upgrade manually, in case they’re unwilling to wait any longer (let’s face it, no one is, considering how Android 4.3 has been a long time coming for Samsung’s yesteryear flagships).

  • – Move-to-SD-card feature
