gs4niceSamsung releases some of the most popular smartphones, phablets and tablets on the market today and because they are so popular they are usually on the top of any update list that Google puts on the internet for the public to check out.  The Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 have been waiting for the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for a little while now and according to reports, it has been confirmed in the United States just recently.  The updates were confirmed for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless, although US Cellular was the first to make a note of the software available in the “coming weeks”.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 Black Mist is available for a reduced sale price now starting at $49.99 – $699.00.

September was the time when Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and at the same time it also announced support for the Gear available on the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.  The updates were not mentioned by name, but the Bluetooth LE should be included with the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update that is expected very soon.  The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update has been hitting various regions of the globe over the last few weeks and it also came with support for the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Those of us in the United States are typically behind when it comes to updates that also hit the global versions of popular smartphones, phablets and tablets, but they do arrive quick enough to keep consumers from complaining too much.  According to one online source last week, the update for the Galaxy S4 will be coming first and should be here before the end of October, with the updates to the other two devices coming before the end of November.  That timeline was not confirmed by the major mobile carriers, but it should apply for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless at least.

Even though US Cellular announced that the update would be ready in the “coming weeks”, they are usually the last to get the software out to the subscribers on the network.  US Cellular was not specific about the date, but history proved that the network tends to be the slowest.  Either way, if you are on the US Cellular network, you should see the update by the end of this year for sure.  Mobile carriers tend to keep quiet about the exact date of a software release just in case something happens and they cannot make the deadline.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 Black Mist can be purchased at a discounted price tag now starting at $49.99 – $699.00.
