Early look at Android 4.3 on Galaxy S 4: Reading Mode and better color reproduction

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 hasn’t received its Android(s goog) 4.3 update yet, however, that hasn’t stopped some from getting an early peek at the software. SamMobile has a reported test build of the update that’s described as very stable, indicating Android 4.3 is coming soon to the Galaxy S 4 smartphone.

Aside from the latest Google bits, what else can you expect? Some keyboard modifications, Samsung Wallet as a default application, and a new Reading Mode to optimize text on certain applications — likely Samsung’s own. Take a look at this quick walkthrough to see what else is coming in Android 4.


One of the more interesting functions is an improvement to the device’s color reproduction; something that device owners will appreciate as many find Samsung’s mobile displays to be a little oversaturated for their taste.

If you want to try the test build on your own Galaxy S 4, SamMobile has the files available. Just be warned that it’s not an official release from Samsung so you’re own on your own for support if something goes wrong.
