Android 4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy S4 said to be close at hand

Android 4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy S4 said to be close at hand
According to a tweet sent on Sunday, the long-awaited Android 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 is just one to two weeks away. At the beginning of this month, we passed along a video showing some of the features on the update. As we told you, Samsung Wallet is a default app on Android 4.3 and secure business application Samsung KNOX is also included. Android 4.3 also brings better color reproduction and text looks sharper on the screen.

Software build I9505XXUEMJ3 is the latest version of Android 4.3 to leak for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and is said to be pretty much the final version of the update for that particular phone. Those who have tested the new build say that there are no major changes compared to the previous one, just some minor tweaks here and there.

The update is for the unlocked European version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-i9505) and while you can visit the sourcelink and download the update, remember that it is not finished. The usual caveats apply here about possibly bricking your phone and losing your warranty. With the official rollout expected to begin soon, why not just wait?

Will we have to wait for KitKat as much time as for 4.3?

Probably longer. If you want updates you should of bought a Nexus.

Updates and Samsung is like oil and water; they don't mix. I think we can safely assume that no non-play edition Samsung devices will have Kitkat In 2013. If your worried about updates go Nexus.

"Software build I9505XXUEMJ3 is the latest version of Android 4.3 to leak for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and is said to be pretty much the final version of the [Android?] update for that particular phone." Does that mean no Kitkat for the S4? Bummer for the S4 owners if so and I'd give credit to Apple for supporting more of its older devices with the newer OS updates.
