Amid the song and dance that ushered in Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Note 3 and the brand new Galaxy Gear smartwatch on Wednesday, some more good news popped up. Samsung confirmed during its Unpacked event that the Galaxy S4 will be updated to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean sometime in October (just in time for Android 4.4 KitKat’s arrival, perhaps). What’s more, last year’s flagship model, the Galaxy S III, will be updated to Android 4.3 next month as well, so users with older devices won’t be left hanging. Different carriers will undoubtedly release the update at different times, of course, so don’t be surprised if October comes and goes and your S III or S4 is still waiting to be updated.
