A new Android 4.3 test build for the Galaxy S4 has been leaked, and it’s available for download, as the release of the official ROM is said to be scheduled for the following weeks.

Sam Mobile posted a short tweet a few hours ago in which it revealed the Android 4.3 update for Samsung’s flagship smartphone should arrive in “1/2 weeks.” Later, it posted the new leaked build on its website, further confirming that roll out window for the Galaxy S4’s Android 4.3 update.

According to the publication, build I9505XXUEMJ3 is “one of the final builds,” although we’re still waiting for Samsung and its carrier partners to officially announce the update.

Sam Mobile also says that after testing the firmware for two days, it hasn’t noticed any major changes, but that there are “minor improvements here and there” – we’ll note that the same publication has posted a similar leak for the same GT-I9505 Galaxy S4 version.

That said, we’ll remind you that we don’t encourage you to install unofficial ROMs, and everything that happens with your handsets and tablets during such processes falls under your responsibility. In case you do want to test the new Android 4.3 leak, make sure you follow closely the instructions posted by the publication.
