Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy S3 is going to get Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Firmware real soon. Why? There is a leaked Android 4.3 firmware for Germany (Vodafone) floating around now. So the official firmware should come near just like Galaxy Note 2. Hopefully, it can get as much stuffs from Galaxy S4. If not, you still can enjoy enhancements and features from Android 4.3 itself. As usual, only flash this leaked firmware if you know what you are doing. For the rest, just wait for OTA update. Should come in 1 or 2 months…
