Android 4.3 update expected next month for "Google Edition" Samsung Galaxy S4
posted by Alan F. / Jun 28, 2013, 12:11 AM
There is no word when the Google Edition of the HTC One, which is also available to be pre-ordered from the Google Play Store, will also receive the Android 4.3 update. This model is $599.00 and comes with connectivity to AT&T's network.
Meanwhile, a published report says that user agent strings are showing versions of Android 4.3 running on the Google Nexus 7 and the Google Nexus 10 tablets. The 7 inch slate was running JWR66D which is code showing a JellyBean build (J) for the second quarter of the year (D) on the 66th day of the quarter (66) and is the fourth build of the day (D). That means that the JWR53F running on the Google Nexus 10 and the build on the Google Nexus 7 are from the end of May, early June.

Google Edition devices will get updates slightly slower than true Nexus, because the manufacturers don't use the stock kernel and need to supply it themselves rather than using the stock kernel and letting Google handle it.

Well, at least most Android devices get extra features in addition to stock Android with OEM custom skins. Also, the Jelly Bean market share has more than doubled since February, being at about 14% in February and 33% by June, so at least more people are enjoying Project Butter and Google Now.

The "Google Edition" of the Samsung Galaxy S4 might soon receive an update to Android 4.3. Some of the quick updates are one of the features of the phone, which are powered by stock Android. However some leaked images of the software running on the phone show that the update is build number JWR66N. The phone is now available for pre-orders from the Google Play Store and will be shipped by July 9th with Android 4.2.2 on board. The update might take place later next month. The device costs $649 and it supports GSM networks like those running at AT&T and T-Mobile. The update for "Google Edition" edition handsets come directly from Google so they do not need to undergo carrier testing. There is no information on when the Google Edition of the HTC One that is available to be pre-ordered from the Google Play Store will receive the Android 4.3 update. This model is $599.00 and comes with connectivity to AT&T's network. gm.kochar.com/post/android-43-update-expected-next-month-for-google-editione2809d-samsung-galaxy-s4.aspx
