Sprint version of Samsung Galaxy S4 receives Android 4.3 update

Sprint version of Samsung Galaxy S4 receives Android 4.3 update
Those of you with the Sprint branded version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 can do their happy dance on Wednesday, now that the Android 4.3 update for the phone has been rolled out. Verizon was the first carrier to update the phone in the U.S. on Monday (a statement that we don't get to write often) and that leaves both the AT&T and T-Mobile branded Galaxy S4 models left to receive the updated OS build.

Besides Android 4.3, the so-called Premium Suite update will give the flagship Android model compatibility with the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch and also add Samsung KNOX to the device. Designed for those who bring their device to the workplace, pressing KNOX opens up a "secure container" that includes a browser, your contacts and calendar enabling you to do work-related chores without fear of a security breach. When you're done, click on the KNOX icon to turn it off.

Based on a previous leak, AT&T customers should receive the update on November 13th with the T-Mobile branded model receiving the Suite on November 18th.
