Android 4.3 update for international Samsung Galaxy S III leaks

Does I9300XXUGMJ9 mean anything to you? It should if you own the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, GT-I9300; those letters and numbers represent the build version for the first leaked version of Android 4.3 for the Samsung Galaxy S III. The build is said to be stable although there could be a few bugs nestled inside it...

you do realised most 2013 phones are still on 4.2 or 4.3 right? and the S3 is a 2012 phone, sammy did a great job, what other 2012 phones are on 4.2 or 4.3?

Whoa.. you are using custom ROM!! I have been looking for you for such a long time. Pls pls tell that the custom ROM can cure cancer. I know that, many people told me that once you have custom ROM, you are like GOD-mode. This is exhilarating stuff. I was told that even Einstein never used a custom ROM. You must be someone very special.

Have you heard of a company called SONY?
It updates 6 months after Samsung does.

Wait... Us this the old touchwiz? Isn't S3 going to look like S4 and Note 3?
27. Bioload25 (Posts: 29; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
No its just the wallpaper
Look at the icons, notification bar and configurations, theyre all different than before and just like the galaxy s4 and note 3

I would expect Samsung to update the S2/Note 1 as well as the Grand Duos/S3 Mini as I read somewhere that 4.4 will be most likely the last major update the S2/Original Note receive.

lol touche. :) I'm waiting for SlimBean 4.4. :)

How is SlimBean 4.3.1 build 2? Bugs? Annoyances? Been rather hesitant on trying it until I know it's ready for daily use.
Still using Omega ROM 4.1.2

Other than launcher redraws (despite keep in memory checked or even Nova's hardwired screens - these can be drastically reduced via memory locker) and some slight annoyances (no separate display timeout setting for lockscreen) - it's great! When not overheating my SGS3 can easily have 3-4 hours of screen time + 20 - 30% battery left. Much much much better than 4.2.2
Can't wait for 4.4! :D

I'm selling my 2 international S3s as soon as my Nexus 5s gets here. Also ordered some fathead Nokia DT900s to go with them.

Good choice on the pillows, although I doubt you have to worry about the 5 scratching like the 4 did. The Fatboy combined with the DT900 is my favorite wireless charger, to date, and it's a lot cheaper than the Nexus wireless chargers.

Custom ROMs have really spoiled us, must people no longer wait for official updates, i for one am waiting for Slimbean kitkat.

my mobile is also suffered after updating. Battery drained more quickly, lagging and slow.
