Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Play phones updated to Android 4.3

By: Steve Wylde

It was just reported, that just over a week after the next version of Android was officially announced, the Google Play versions of HTC and Samsung’s S4 are getting the update to Android 4.3. Google’s Hugo Barra, when referring to the Galaxy S4, explained “one of the benefits of this new variant of this flagship phone would be prompt updates.”

The point of this release is that Google is attempting to offer their own Google vision for Android on other mobile phone systems other than the Nexus phones. If you have a Google Play edition phone and not yet received the 4.3 update, it is expected later this week.
