With word that the Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II would be skipping Android 4.2.2 and heading straight to Android 4.3, a leaked picture from the same source shows the Samsung Galaxy S III wearing a test version of the next Android build; the device in the picture allegedly belongs to someone who works for Samsung's R&D center in India...

The quality of PA's article are going down exponentially everyday.
It's so obvious is fake. Looked at the kernel compilation date.

uh yeah just noticed that thanks for pointing it out :| the kernel was compiled in february.i'm pretty sure nobody not even the companies got the 4.3 source available to them back in feb cause obviously google wouldn't have released 4.3 so soon it might still be in development.

For once oem are ahead of android version release.

I believe it is just matter of "push the button" at Google to send the 4.3 update to Nexus devices. When other OEMs will be ready they might push it together at once.

What it means is if OEM's are working on it already, its been ready on a nexus device, as android is developed on a nexus.

Now s3 is affordable price, with 4.3 update it will become more powerful.

Like I said, Sammy will shock ppl. with the early adaptation of 4.3 on last year's flagships.

This is undoubtedly FAKE, one cannot use a kernel compiled for Android 4.2 on 4.3 without adding the changes & recompiling it. This kernel was compiled the February 19 and at exactly 16:06:59 and the same used in the leaked 4.2.1 firmware.
Furthermore it has the same changelist as the leaked Feburary firmware (171637)
Android Version: 4.1.2 - JZO54K (Jelly Bean)
Region: Middle East
Build Date: 19th Februray 2013
