Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 Android 4.3 firmware with build numbers I9505XXUEMI8 has recently leaked out. The folks at Sammobile said that the Android 4.3 firmware can now directly installed to Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 unlocked phones without facing any issues whatsoever, as the folks added. The Galaxy S4 4.3 also includes the new Samsung Knoxx security apps and some new stuff was spotted, including the new reading mode.
Here’s the statement from Sammobile:
We have been testing this Android 4.3 test firmware since a few days now and can say that it’s really stable and the performance has received a significant boost, it’s much faster and lag free than Android 4.2.2. Samsung Knox and Samsung Wallet are present in this test firmware, Samsung Knox works like a charm but Samsung Wallet can’t be downloaded from Samsung servers at the moment. Also, there is a new Reading Mode which optimizes the screen for reading, but only a few specific applications are able to use this feature, and there is a new improved keyboard as well. Most of the changes are under the hood, except a few minor UI changes here and there. Now the most interesting part, this firmware has improved color reproduction of the display quite a bit and the text looks even sharper than before.
