Samsung has moved on from updating its last few flagships to Android 4.3, like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, and is now updating lower-end devices. The latest to be updated to Android 4.3 is the Verizon Galaxy S4 Mini, and surprisingly, the budget-oriented device is getting support for the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
Other than Gear support, you won’t find much else changed. Verizon added some more bloatware apps, fixed a few bugs, improved 4G LTE connectivity and changed the name of a single feature. Despite the jump in Android version, it’s not a huge update. It goes to show how unimportant Android version is in some cases.
If you own one of these small devices, head to Settings > About phone to check for updates. You may just get it before everyone else. If you don’t get it, wait a while for the rollout to spread. And tell us, will you be getting a Galaxy Gear now that you can?
