A new Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update is available for users to install, this time for the 3G T-Mobile version (model number T999), although you should remember that various Galaxy S3 owners had issues with similar updates, albeit in other markets.
As expected, the update is available either as an over-the-air (OTA) download on the phone, or via Samsung Kies. Furthermore, the update measures 486MB, so you should make sure you have a dependable Internet connection and enough battery juice to go through it.
In addition to all the expected Android 4.3 Jelly Bean goodies, the update also brings Galaxy Gear and Samsung Knox support, if either feature is something you’re interested in.
We’ll remind you again that Samsung UK confirmed that the Android 4.3 update for the international Galaxy S3 has been pulled until further notice following the many issues encountered by users in the region. Similarly, the AT&T Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has been stopped, so you may want to make sure the T-Mobile Galaxy S3 update is safe before proceeding.
The LTE T-Mobile Galaxy S3 version (model number T999L) will receive its Android 4.3 build at some point in the near future.
