Rejoice, T-Mobile Galaxy S4 users, you're getting an OTA to 4.3 today

780MB update brings Android 4.3, Knox, and Galaxy Gear support

If you're using a Galaxy S4 on T-Mobile, you've had your patience tested the past few months. The same phone on other carriers (without Wifi calling, which everyone expects is the reason for the delays) has seen updates come and go to improve the laggy behavior of the S4, while we had to sit back and wonder when it would be our turn.

Our turn is today. The Android 4.3 update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 is pushing out right now. I fired up mine and mashed a few buttons and see it for myself. It seems like a very slow download, but I can wait another hour for the 780MB file.

The highlights:


  • Android version 4.3 / Baseband version M919UVUEMK2
  • Approved 11/26/2013
  • OTA and Samsung Kies update available 11/26/2013


  • KNOX
  • Samsung Galaxy Gear support


  • Device software is not rooted
  • 50% battery life
  • Latest version of Kies software downloaded on PC or MAC
  • Data connection
  • File size of update is 781 MB

So fire up Kies or mash your own buttons and get you some update on.
