Since there are two Galaxy S4 variants sold in Canada, those from Bell, Rogers, Telus and etc. with model number SGH-I747M which already received the 4.3 update earlier. The M919V will received the official Android 4.3 software build M919VVLUEMK5 and update from old Android 4.2.2 M919VVLUAMG1.

There might be some improvements on graphics, keyboard and data connectivity. So better check out as we already spotted and confirmed that this update is now on Samsung firmware firmware server.
