Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update

Samsung’s been busy these past few weeks rolling out Android 4.3 across their huge product portfolio, spanning across multiple carriers and regions. There’s definitely been some bumps along the way, but it’s just one of the problems OEMs face when it comes to supporting legacy devices with Androids updates that roll out just about every other month.

Earlier today we told you about the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 2 receiving its Android 4.3 update, and now it’s time for Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 to jump on the Jelly Bean bandwagon.

Verizon Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update benefits

Verizon S3’s can expect build VRUCML1 to hit any minute now, with benefits that include compatibility with the Samsung Galaxy Gear, support for apps to SD support and TRIM, as well as heap of bug fixes. Updates are always a ton of fun (except when they’re not) so try and back up what you can prior to updating. Heck, even a fresh factory reset never hurts.

The Verizon Galaxy S3 joins the ranks of the T-Mobile Galaxy S3, the Galaxy S3 LTE, Galaxy S3 on Sprint and US Cellular and finally the AT&T version — all of which have received their updates to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean in the past few weeks.

To check if your update is available, hop into your Settings > About Device > Software Update > Check for Updates — or head here for further update instructions. Godspeed.
