1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Samsung might skip 4.2.2 and go directly to 4.3 for S3 and Note 2!

    Surprised nobody mentioned this article in here:

    Samsung Might Skip 4.2.2 Update for Galaxy S3 and Note 2, Plans Jelly Bean 4.3 Instead, along with Galaxy S4 | Temefy

    I don't mind, as long as the Note 2 isn't abandoned by Samsung, like the Photon and Atrix were by Motorola.

    Article also mentions that Note 2 will be getting Key Lime Pie, which is encouraging. Just wonder how long it'll be, until we actually get Key Lime Pie (especially since 4.2.2 is delayed and potentially will be skipped over).

    I'm all for 4.3!!! Heard it will fix a lot of bluetooth problems related to low power BT4.0. That one is a big hurdle when it comes to smartwatches and other bt devices relying on bt4.0.

    Well, if Sprint gets all that some time this year, Verizon customers can expect to see Key Lime Pie by 2018 or so.

    I can hardly wait. And I won't. ;)

    Didn't realize how big an improvement BT4.0 is, but I've been reading up on it. Something still confuses me, when it comes to that though.

    If a device is equipped with BT4.0, but the BT device you're using is 3.0 and lower, is there still lower battery consumption?

    Both host (phone) and accessory needs to have BT4.0 (BLE - bluetooth low energy) since it's a brand new protocol stack. I just know from communication with MetaWatch guys that Google messed something up with a protocol implementation in 4.1.x/4.2.x while in 4.3 it will be fixed.

    Btw, BT4.0 is backward compatible with previous BT2.0/3.0 standards since it supports both high speed and classic bluetooth protocols.

    Thanks for the explanation. I guess that I don't have any bt devices that'll take full advantage then.

    I'll just need to upgrade my bt headsets

    I'm on Sprint, so it'll probably be another year. :)

    I dunno. Sprint has been known to update fairly fast, for their top of the line phones. I'm on Sprint also.
