    The Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE Edition (Model GT-I9505) already had a leaked version of Android 4.3 grace its silicon. Now the official version is hitting the airwaves. Samsung officially launched the newest version of Android for the this particular version of the SGS4. As of right now it is only hitting this device in Germany, although it should come to others eventually. It's unlikely we will see carrier versions of the SGS4 get the Android 4.3 anytime soon, but now that this is finished, it should start filtering out over the next couple of months. Here's a list of some of the updates found in the changelog:
    Samsung Galaxy S 4 – Android 4.3 Update Changelog
    • OpenGL 3.0 Support
    • GALAXY GEAR Support
    • TRIM Support (Makes the device much faster)

    • Samsung KNOX Implementation (KNOX bootloader and dedicated application)
    • Samsung Wallet comes pre-loaded
    • Improved RAM management

    Now the key question is when the carriers will push it down to users.
