Sprint’s Galaxy Note 2, AT&T’s Galaxy S3 get Android 4.3 updates all with Galaxy Gear support

Sprint's Galaxy Note 2, AT&T's Galaxy S3 get Android 4.3 updates

After international version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II got its Android 4.3 update, Sprint is following suit with its own specific version of Sammy’s phablet. Aside from all the platform changes, the new firmware also includes Galaxy Gear smart watch support, Samsung KNOX secure environment compatibility, and HD Voice enhancements.

Meanwhile, AT&T is rolling out a similar software update for the Galaxy S3. Again, Galaxy Gear support comes included and so do a number of software tweaks that will make Samsung’s last year flagship look like a still-hot Galaxy S4. We just hope this software version is better than the one Samsung “offered” to the international crowd and which was buggy as hell; hence the Korean company had to suspend the rollout until all of the bugs are squashed.

Anyway, the big picture is obvious – Samsung wants to have as many of its devices as possible compatible with its smart watch to benefit from the holiday shopping craze. So our question is – will you be getting the Galaxy Gear yourself?
