Samsung officially announced that Android 4.3 will makes its way to a number of Galaxy devices starting with Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. It was announced that Android 4.3 will roll out for Galaxy S4 by the end of this month for both GT-I9505 and GT-I9500 versions, followed by Galaxy S3 and Note 2 in November and December, respectively. We even saw a leaked version of Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note 2 earlier today.
Now, it seems that several AT&T Galaxy handsets will get the taste of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean in the coming weeks. DesignGears, a popular Android developer, recently leaked Android 4.3 test firmwares for a bunch of AT&T handsets including Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4 Active.
If you don’t remember, a leaked schedule also emerged on the internet showing the Android 4.3 update launch schedule for the abovementioned devices, starting with Verizon and Sprint Galaxy S4 by the end of October. The leaked document also mentioned that Android 4.3 update for Galaxy S4 will start rolling out Android 4.3 update for Galaxy S4, S3 and Note 2 in November, followed by Galaxy S4 Active in December.
Here’s the complete change log for Android 4.3 update:
– Galaxy Gear Support
– TRIM Support (Makes the device much faster)
– ANT+ Support
– Samsung KNOX Implementation (KNOX bootloader and dedicated application)
– Samsung Wallet comes pre-loaded

We’ll update you as soon as AT&T makes any official announcement about Android 4.3 roll out. Until then, you can check out them out at SamMobile, but let me remind you that these are test firmwares and may contain bugs. Additionally, it’s better to wait for the official release, otherwise just head over to the source link for the download links.
