As promised by Samsung in the Samsung Unpacked Event Epsiode 2, which held at IFA event in Berlin on September 4, 2013, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for its flagship device Galaxy S4 has been released today. Samsung promised its users while showing off the Galaxy Gear that the support for Galaxy Gear in the devices like Galaxy S4, Note 2 and S3 will be rolled out along the next update. At that time, we assumed it to be Android 4.3 and it is 4.3 unveiled today officially by Samsung.
Apparently there are no changes to the UI, but under the hood the update has a lot of performance improvements and bug fixes. The update ensures a stable rom for what Samsung is known far, and also the reason because of what Samsung usually takes longer to roll out the updates. We believe that Samsung will keep rolling out the updates for a long term, as Samsung is best known for not forgetting its devices which get old with time, the example is there for us, Samsung Galaxy S2 was initially released with Android 2.3 Ginger Bread on board and the device received the updates up to Android Jelly Bean.
The changes, as per Sammobile reported:
TRIM Support (Makes the device much faster)
– ANT+ Support
– Samsung KNOX Implementation (KNOX bootloader and dedicated application)
– Samsung Wallet comes pre-loaded
– Improved RAM management
– Improved Display colour reproduction (Display looks much sharper than before)
– Improved TouchWiz Launcher (Much less launcher redraws and less lag)
– New Samsung Keyboard
– New Samsung Browser (Full screen by default, new tab interface and more)
– New Reading Mode (Optimises display for reading, used by only a few specific applications)
– New Camera firmware
– Minor UI tweaks (Contacts app, Flashlight Widget, dialog boxes etc)
