Among the countless exhibitions from IFA 2013, Berlin, there is also good news coming for Samsung Galaxy S4 and the predecessor Samsung Galaxy S3 consumers. According to the statement, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S3 will receive the long-awaited Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update in October.
A spokesman for Samsung told to Engadget specifying that Android 4.3 will be pushed to Galaxy S4 and S3 devices along with the update that’ll add Galaxy Gear functionality to the Galaxy S4. The Smartwatch Galaxy Gear based on Android was announced last evening during the Unpacked conference in Berlin.
However, they didn’t provide any details about new features in this release, in addition to those already seen and analyzed in depth in late July, when Android 4.3 was released on the Nexus lineup.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean supports video-streaming at 1080p leveraging a new set of DRM APIs that enable hardware-based encryption for video. It also supports Open GLES 3.0, which brings a greater graphics capabilities, and Bluetooth Smart technology.
Hence, the South Korean manufacturer proves to be constantly engaged not only in the realization of new devices, but also to keep updated those already on the market. In this update, both smartphones currently representing the flagship devices from the company are likely to get close to the launch of Android 4.4 KitKat, the next evolution of the operating system announced yesterday with a surprise move — a partnership that binds the Mountain View Company and the Swiss food group Nestle.
