Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note II in line for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean upgrade this october

With the announcement of their new smartwatch the Galaxy Gear, it seems like Samsung has given themselves a self imposed hard deadline with which to release Android 4.3. The Galaxy Gear syncs to Galaxy smartphones via Low Power Bluetooth 4.0. This is only supported in Android 4.3 as of now, meaning that for the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note II to be able to support the Galaxy Gear they will need the update in addition to the software needed by Galaxy Gear.

This being said, while we do hope it is true, it remains to be seen if carrier testing will get in the way of a widespread rollout to coincide with the Galaxy Gear release in Canada not to mention that Galaxy Gear doesn't have a solid Canadian launch date yet.

More info as it come in.
