Samsung Galaxy S4 getting Android 4.3 update in India

Samsung Galaxy S4Samsung India has started rolling out Android 4.3 update in the country earlier today. The update is now available via Kies app on PC or Mac and as over-the-air download. As the software updates are released in batches, not everyone will get the update right-away.

Galaxy S4 owners can manually check for the OTA update by going to Settings > More > About Device > Software update > Update. If you don’t see the update or are getting ‘limit exceeded’ message, don’t worry and check for the update after some time or try downloading it using Kies application.

The OTA update is 658MB in size, so it is better to download it using a decent Wi-Fi connection or 3G if you don’t have data FUP restrictions.

India is the second country after Russia to get the Android 4.3 for I9500 Exynos version. There is no official change-log available (Updated with official change-log).

  • OS upgrade (Android 4.3)
  • Added new feature (Knox for consumer, etc.)
  • Compatibility with Galaxy Gear
  • Improved performance (Graphics, Multimedia, Bluetooth, etc.)
  • Improved user interface and stability
  • User interface adjustment (icon change etc.)
  • Security Enhancements

If you have already downloaded and installed the update, do let us know about the experience in comments.

Thanks Kush Verma

    • No Samsung wallet because the service is not available in india, but still if you want to install Samsung wallet, its available on Google Play store, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sec.android.wallet&hl=en

      It will say its not available in India, to bypass, install chrome extension, ProxyMate, it will bypass the country restriction and you can directly install it on your device. 🙂 I am sharing my screen shot of Galaxy S4

  4. I just updated my Galaxy S4 to Android 4.3. One of the first things that is bothering me is that in the Notifications panel now only about 10 Quick settings buttons can be adjusted, which is unlike before when you can scroll left to right for the whole list. I don’t understand the logic of this change which to me appears a step backwards. Any comments?
