Samsung Galaxy S3 did get the Android 4.3 update a few months back however because of several issues the update was called off. The good news is that, the 4.3 update is back and currently available via OTA or Kies software.

If you own the Samsung Galaxy S3 handset you can get the update done via OTA or Kies. The file size is around 408 MB. The update will be rolled out in a phased manner so in case if you do not see the 4.3 upgrade options, try again after few days.

The 4.3 update on the Galaxy S3 will not only get most of the new stuffs (lock screen, multiple widgets, screen modes etc) but also make the device compatible with Galaxy Gear Smart watch. Other new apps are also added – as seen on the Galaxy S4.

We hope the S3 update (this time) will be bug free. In case you have already updated do leave a comment and let us know how it went.
