Samsung confirmed earlier today that the much awaited Android 4.3 update for U.S. variants of the Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 will be rolled out starting today. Just yesterday we saw a leaked document hint at Verizon Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 release on October 28th, which is today. It appears that Verizon may indeed roll out the update later today, Samsung has already gone live with the changelog so its only a matter of time before the update is pushed out over-the-air, barring any last minute issues.
The Verizon Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 update build VRUEMJ7 is going to bump up the core OS to Android 4.3 and enable Band 4 LTE. It is also finally going to bring support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch to the Galaxy S4. Support for Samsung KNOX is also going to be added through this update. It appears that Verizon is leading the charge this time around with regards to OS update. Sprint is expected to roll out Android 4.3 on October 30th, followed by AT&T and T-Mobile on 13th and 18th of November respectively. Though as yet, Verizon hasn’t released a confirmation that the update is indeed coming today. So just sit back and keep your fingers crossed, hopefully an OTA update notification will drop shortly.
