T-Mobile’s LTE-enabled Galaxy S III (SGH-T999L) gets Android 4.3 update

T-Mobile was one of the first carriers to roll out the elusive Android 4.3 update to the Galaxy S III (SGH-T999), and now the carrier is doing the same for the not-so-well-known LTE-enabled variant of the device (SGH-T999L). As with the update that was pushed to other Samsung devices, users will see features and improvements such as Galaxy Gear and KNOX support, improved camera firmware and a couple of new camera features, faster filesystem performance, a visual interface similar to newer devices like the Galaxy S4, among others

Here’s the full changelog (build number T999LUVUBMK4):

  • - 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 has reportedly been rolling out since Monday, so some of you should have already received it, while others might not have to wait too long after reading this before getting to enjoy everything the Android 4.3 update brings. The over-the-air update is around 500 MB in size, and those who like to do things differently can also try updating via Kies or by downloading the firmware from the firmware section.

Very nice tha US variant’s of SIII are geting the 4.3 update and they got more goodies. Samsung you made me think to switch to a diferent brand. If this goes on I hope the S5 sales will become a disaster, maybe then they will unterstand that a good phone needs a good and fast software update for at least two years. If they want to stay on top.

But that’s the thing: updates simply do not define how well a device sells. Users like you and me might switch brands, but most people will never care about a newer version of the OS. It will take more than just late updates to cause problems for Samsung’s, especially since they still are one of the fastest to roll out updates (Sony has updated zero devices to 4.3, HTC only one, LG none).

Still a slow update will make a user learn about the flaws that a phone has even more.
