Android 4.3 update for international Samsung Galaxy S III leaks

0. phoneArena 03 Nov 2013, 02:59 posted on

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...

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.

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.

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.
