Samsung suspends Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 rollout to investigate 'issues'

It's been just a couple weeks since Samsung started rolling out Android 4.3 for the international Galaxy S3, bringing an updated version of Android to S3 owners along with Galaxy Gear support. But it seems the update may need a little more time in the oven, as some users are reporting stability problems with the latest firmware. SamMobile has today received a statement from Samsung Mobile UK today confirming that the 4.3 update has been "temporarily suspended" while the company looks into these issues.

“As we are currently investigating the reported issues with Galaxy S3 4.3 Jelly Bean update, the upgrading service has been temporarily suspended. We are committed to providing customers with the best possible mobile experience, and will ensure to resume the upgrading service at the earliest possibility.” 

The halt to the update process leaves GS3 owners on the year-old Android 4.1.2, with no immediate indication as to when the 4.3 rollout will resume.
