Owners of the Galaxy S4 have been patiently waiting for Samsung to release Android 4.3 for their devices for quite some time now. During its Unpacked Episode 2 event, Samsung told its customers that the 4.3 update was coming soon, but failed to give an exact date on when the updated OS would arrive on the S4. As it turns out, most S4 owners only had to wait until today.




This morning, Samsung announced that it has began rolling out the Android 4.3 update to all Galaxy S4 phones. The update is being pushed out on a tiered basis and the company says that it will take a few days for everyone to receive 4.3. Do not get your expectations too high though as Android 4.3 is mostly an underwhelming update and only brings forth a few small features and bug fixes. The biggest improvement is the ability to run the browser in full screen mode upon launch, which is nice on a large screen device like the S4.
